Hello Kavita, Oct. 2, The Bouquet 

Well, hello, Denver-based band with a new CD, To A Loved One, due out in October and recorded to tape on vintage gear. Your winsome lyrics are delightfully sung, and your indie, folky music has a classic vibe that would have been a fitting addition to The Graduate soundtrack--not because you sound like Simon or Garfunkel but because your music hearkens back to a different time. Welcome to town.

The five guys who comprise Hello Kavita have the combined experience of nearly 30 bands between them, but drummer Leor Manelis (the most recent addition) said playing in Hello Kavita, which has been together in this lineup for about a year and a half, is different.

"There's a nice camaraderie between us, and there's no band drama," Manelis said. "It feels good to play with these really talented guys."

Bassist Jimmy Stofer (who toured with The Fray) agreed.

"When we're together in a room, there's this huge ease of writing," Stofer said. "We go with our first instincts. It's not like that in other bands."

And he likened vocalist/songwriter Corey Teruya to a project manager.

"Bands work best with a leader," Stofer said. "But it's definitely a democracy. Everyone has input, and everyone is irreplaceable."

Friday, Oct. 2, with Matt Hopper and Sunshine and The Valley, 9 p.m., $5, The Bouquet, 1010 W. Main St., thebouquet.net.
