Olivetti Letter, Baby Teardrops 

When: Fri., Nov. 25, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: cover at door
Much-loved Kansas City grunge-pop act Doris Henson disbanded about five years ago, when frontman Matt Dunnehoo relocated to New York City. There, he founded Baby Teardrops, which is one of the worst band names I've ever heard. Dunnehoo’s local pedigree earns him some leeway, though, so I listened to his new band, and I’m glad I did. The smart, fuzzy, occasionally angular power pop is similar in tone to A.C. Newman’s songs on New Pornographers records. For this show — a vinyl-release party for Baby Teardrops’ X Is for Love, out on local label Golden Sound Records — Dunnehoo plays with the Kansas City version of his band, which includes Mike Myers (In the Pines, String and Return,) Duane Trower (Season to Risk, Doris Henson, Overstep) and Jeremiah James (Elevator Division, Be/Non). Olivetti Letter, a new band featuring Myers and Trower, opens.
