Jill Andrews and Holy Ghost Tent Revival hit up the Visulite Theatre tonight (2/4/12)

JILL ANDREWS/HOLY GHOST TENT REVIVAL Jill Andrews’ former band, the Everybodyfields, specialized in the sorrowful sounds of classic folk and country. Solo, Andrews forsakes Americana for piano and guitar-driven alt-pop. Her voice is still warm and unwavering, and she’s added a hint of playfulness to songs that are more Carole King than Neko Case. But the hint of high lonesome is never far away. Ramshackle and raucous, Holy Ghost Tent Revival plays indy rock by way of good time Dixieland jazz from the gutter. Horns, banjo and a hint of ragtime tempo lend down-home grit to tightly crafted pop melodies with killer harmonies. Despite the Alan Lomax field recording aesthetic, it’s all about aching songs of heartbreak and love. A stellar double-bill. $12-$15; $7. Visulite Theatre.
