Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

The Ground Is Lava/Runaway Brother/My Mouth is the Speaker/Ben Hendricks & Corey Willis (in the Locker Room)

When: Sat., Feb. 7, 9 p.m. 2015

Tonight, Brunswick-based The Ground is Lava will play their final show. For obvious reasons, the occasion is something of a bittersweet gathering. Still, these guys know how to put on a good show, so everyone who comes out to bid them adieu will be carried aloft in high spirits. Even better, though: The band’s studio output will remain accessible for eons. Bottle Rockets, released in 2013, is a really terrific summertime-youth album, replete with images of love, friendship, adventure and yearning. “Look, Babe, An Island (We Can Live On It)” is a top-notch rocker and a deep dive into the common denominators of want and need in all good love stories. And “Smashers” works the quiet-loud dynamic into the album with aplomb. As the band launches into the chorus, you can’t help but start nodding your head and shaking your hips. Oh, and rumor has it you can check out tonight’s setlist on their Facebook page. (Sandy)
