Pop music fans have a reason to leave the house tonight, for the excellent triple bill at the Firebird. From Kansas City, fantastic power-pop group the ACBs
-- think XTC meets Cheap Trick meets Todd Rundgren -- will be returning to the venue; its last gig there was performing at the Blind Eyes' CD release party in March
. And what do you know? The Blind Eyes
are also playing tonight! Finally, Justin Ripley
(who used to be in a great little Lawrence band called the Pomonas
) will be performing some of his solo stuff. (More info on his music here
.) MP3: The ACBs, "You Did It Once"MP3: Justin Ripley, "Up for Grabs"MP3: Justin Ripley, "Noise Narratives"MP3: The Blind Eyes, "January"
