BULLETS & BELLES, THE STATE ROOM, Friday, Jan. 4, 9 p.m., $10
Husband-and-wife songwriters Ryan Cron and Erin Haley might be familiar to some for their years in La Farsa, the musically adventurous group they were part of before starting Bullets & Belles along with Noel Sandberg. Calling themselves "neo-doo wop-folk," the trio creates winning tunes full of boy/girl harmonies and creative arrangements. Earlier this year, they released a three-song EP, and now they're ready to unleash the band's first full-length album, Be Glad, with a headlining show at The State Room. Joining Bullets & Belles for the show are Triggers & Slips and The Bully, making this a stellar night of local music at arguably the best-sounding room in town. It's hard to imagine a better way to release a new batch of tunes to the world.
