In Concert: Denver indie-pop band Dressy Bessy will play at Dartmouth’s Collis Center on Friday, with opening act Death Ray Davies hitting the stage at 9 PM (and these Collis events tend to be more punctual than those at other venues). Wrote one Dartmouth professor (from the economics department, no less), “They sound like Apples in Stereo if the Apples listened to the Ronettes instead of all that time spent listening to Pet Sounds.” And that similarity isn’t so surprising; Apples guitarist John Hill plays with the band and is dating singer/guitarist Tammy Ealom. Expect simple pleasing tunes with a Sixties pop sensibility.

Now, if only we could get Anton Newcombe out here…
