Hearts of Animals

Hearts of Animals is high-quality lo-fi. The one-woman band starring Mlee Marie features gentle layers of fuzz-treated guitars, beats and keys. The compositions are placed behind Marie's lullaby-licious vocals for a dreamy synth-pop sound. Hearts of Animals plays perfectly in an intimate club setting or over your stereo as you gaze at glow-in-the-dark ceiling stars. And why not have it both ways? After the show, pick up a copy of Marie's latest EP. The record is the first release from the people at artist collective/gallery ArtStorm, who recently decided to test the music-business waters. Find out why they gave Marie first-in-the-catalog status when she shares the bill with fellow locals Alkari and Orents Stirner at 8 p.m. Rudyards, 2010 Waugh Drive. For information, call 713-521-0521 or visit www.rudyards.com. $8.
