Little Green Cars, Kris Orlowski

When: Wed., Oct. 9, 9 p.m. 2013

Little Green Cars played a show at the Doug Fir back in April, and for a modest crowd of curiosity seekers, the Dublin folk-pop quintet proved itself to be entirely magnetic and winning. They played open-mouthed, open-hearted teenage anthems sprinkled with just a hint of homegrown Irish sorrow to keep things from curdling. Tonight they return to play for what is certain to be a bigger crowd—no one who saw that show would miss the chance to see them again. Little Green Cars' debut album, Absolute Zero, is a not-at-all-annoying mixture of youthfulness and competence, with some really terrific songs to boot: "The John Wayne" and "Harper Lee" are much more than celebrity namedrops, and they display the band's truly spine-tingling coed harmonies.
