Concert Preview: Blane Fonda Live at Reggie's Music Joint (Friday, 4/27/12 - A Concert to Support the Now Hear This! Fund)

Following a sold out show earlier this month at Schubas, local indie-rock, power pop quintet Blane Fonda return to raise money in support of children's hearing therapy this Friday at Reggie's.

Established in 2008, the Now Hear This! Fund seeks to "advance the quality of life and treatment for patients who are deaf or who experience hearing loss."

Having formed in early 2009, 2012 sees the release of Blane Fonda's full length debut Foolish Croon.  A highly danceable fusion of indie-rock and power pop, the album also features well-formed songs garnished with horns and electronic elements driven by an undeniable new wave influence.

"MASSIVE Parties" reminds me of a bit more rocking take on Haricut 100's "Love Plus One" while "Opportunity Rocks" is more reminiscent of The National's deliberate delivery.

According to the Now Hear This! website, "31 million Americans are deaf or have hearing loss!"  So it might not be the worst idea to bring some earplugs with you to Reggie's on Friday (if only this one time!).

It's hard to go wrong with food, drinks, raffle prizes and live music, so plan on making yourself available for a great cause this Friday at 6PM at Reggie's.
