Playing Around: Rainville

You know when you're down in the dumps, and you're sure no one else has ever felt the way you do? Well, Rainville understands. They know that depression can swing you from self-pity, to reckless abandon, to manic humor in the span of a minute -- and they write songs that keep up. Their piano-driven ditties use Let It Bleedera Stones as a framework, and add Tom Waits flourishes to the country-rock proceedings. By capitalizing on their ability to sympathize, Rainville are able to sneak small doses of hope into their music without sacrificing the somber tendencies of their songs. These guys know that, occasionally, being gloomy can be a gift -- and they've decided to share it with you. Join the pity party when Rainville opens up for George Thorogood at the Music Hall. The show starts at 9 p.m. and tickets are $25. Call 800/965-4827.
