Loophole

Ovation at Green Valley Ranch, Feb. 2

Blending soul-searching lyrics and a Christian-acoustic-rock sound, this local band brought a feel-good vibe to their set. With three “lead” singers in a four-piece band, the group of multi-instrumentalists sound kind of like Crosby, Stills & Nash with a touch of Audioslave. Loophole’s songs featured incredible three-part harmonies and eternity-minded lyrics that asked “Where ya gonna be when the big man finally comes?”

Bassist/guitarist/vocalist Tim Catching, wearing a coat designed by his sister, professed his faith on the track “Whisper for the Masses” and on his beautiful rendition of Jeff Buckley’s “Hallelujah.” One of Loophole’s other multi-instrumentalists, who goes by the name Arrow, complemented the band nicely with his pleasing vocals and exciting stage presence. Loophole’s heavenly harmonies are definitely worth checking out. (Loophole plays every first Thursday at Ovation, doors at 8 p.m., free, 21 and up). ★★★☆☆

Red Tails

By Tribune Media Services

While the real-life struggles and heroics of the Tuskegee Airmen deserve top-quality portrayals; George Lucas’ long-gestating project isn’t one. Some of the action is fun, but the filmmaking is more in love with its digital effects than with the plight of the characters. In 1944 Italy, a fictional group of African-American pilots finally get to prove their worth. While the actors (Nate Parker, David Oyelowo, Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding Jr.) do all they can, Lucas didn’t get the script right with this one.
