It's a fairly light week music-wise, but still some good shows to check out. Show of the week goes to Americans in France and Whatever Brains, who will be at Nightlight on Friday with Invisible Hand and Naked Gods. (Photo of Americans in France, above, taken by Jordan Lawrence).
Also this week, at least two cool shows on Thursday, including Small Ponds, the new project with Caitlin Cary, at Tir na Nog, and The Lonely H at Slim's. I haven't seen The Small Ponds, but I've been told they're indie folk with great harmonies and hooks (thanks Alex). I have seen Washington state's Lonely H quite a few times, and basically they're a group of young guys perfectly recreating '70s anthemic rock. The Lonely H will also be at The Cave on Wednesday.
