Handsome Is as Handsome Does

In-home velvet-couch rendition of “Darling, My Darling“

The Handsome Family is a local band. Of sorts. Based in Albuquerque, Brett and Rennie Sparks don’t often gig here, treating the hometown as another stop on tour, making you feel like your favorite band is passing through town again and you’d better get over to the show. With an Americana twang and morbid sense of humor, the duo are a macabre but lighthearted George Burns and Gracie Allen, their act honed sharp after years of working some gothic vaudeville circuit. Opening is the busking, raga-folk-rocking Fast Heart Mart, taking pointed jabs at a piggish society while gleefully waiting for Rome to fall. A $9 cover gets you a night of songs about insects, sad milkmen and lonesome death in the Wal-Mart parking lot.
