Choo Choo La Rouge

Lots of bands have terrible names—Kajagoogoo, Enuff Z'Nuff, Juliana Hatfield—so let's not hold this against Boston alt-rockers Choo Choo La Rouge, who twang like Whiskeytown in new album Black Clouds. While the amicable "Here Come the Guns" offers two tickets to the proverbial show, the restrained "It's Gonna Happen Fast" smacks of Wilco without the dad-rock affectations. Full of wisdom, heart, and nasal-perfect vocals, enjoy tonight's Kiam Records showcase the way they do it down in Boston. Which reminds me, did Sam and Diane ever make it work? With Dump, Clint Michigan, and Jennifer O'Connor.
