Not a lot of bands tour during the last half of December, which means it's up to local acts to step up and fill venues around town. This double bill of KC acts is a special treat. The Caves are fresh off the release of their new album, Duplexiaville
, a fine bit of downbeat, acoustic alt-rock. The Grisly Hand's sunnier disposition and Loretta Lynn vibes ought to nicely complement all those Christmas-season Beam-and-waters.
Saturday, December 22, at Davey's Uptown Ramblers Club, 10 p.m., $10.
