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). ★★★☆☆

Good Greens

By Michelle Franco

Not just any band can draw a hefty crowd on a Wednesday night, but Good Greens can. With their body-grooving style of reggae-rap, this local six-piece kicked off a set that felt more like a house party than a concert. And the crowd responded by dancing and singing along. Good Greens has been jamming out since 2010, and in that time they have cultivated a clean, radio-quality sound. They kept that sound fresh by alternating leading instruments on each song. Saxophonist Randall Logan led the highly contagious “Ojos Rojos,” whose chorus sticks in your head.
