.Be Our Guest: Miss Lonely Hearts

Described as hard-drivin’ California honky-tonk, Miss Lonely Hearts is a staple of Santa Cruz’s thriving roots and country scene.
But where some acts might be content to strum guitars sweetly while singing tender tunes of love and loss, MLH grabs life, liquor and love by the horns and emerges with a rebel-rousing sound that sets dance floors rocking deep into the night. As Devil Makes Three’s Cooper McBean has said, “Will they drink you out of house and home, dance with every lady in the house, and wear nothing but snow pants while they do it? You just never know what might happen when these guys come to town.” This show is a double album release party, along with the Carolyn Sills Combo, and also features the McCoy Tyler Band.
INFO: 9 p.m. Friday, May 27. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $12/adv, $15/door. 423-1338. WANT TO GO? Go to santacruz.com/giveaways before 11 a.m. on Friday, May 20 to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the show.
