Regardless of the initial negative reaction to the idea of starting a band, the duo became a five piece, creating a sound that crosses the vintage silliness of the Dresden Dolls with the heavier side of Arcade Fire. Carrying an all-local line-up tonight which includes David Rynhart and The Tanukis, Raven and the Writing Desk bring its mix of strings, piano, guitar and drama to the venue's dark back room. This show is 21 and up and tickets are $6-8. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts around 8 p.m.
