Well Hellogoodbye And Welcome To Boise 

Feb. 23, The Venue

Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs! are so 10 minutes ago--at least for SoCal band Hellogoodbye. Since releasing Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs! in 2006, the peppy, pop-rockers have done the one thing necessary for a band to thrive: they reinvented, re-thought and refined their sound.

Hellogoodbye's 2010 full-length release, Would It Kill You? lacks the punchy, dancey electronica and bent vocals on Zombies' breakout single "Here (In Your Arms)." Instead acoustic and electric guitars, strings, a little brass and joyous Arctic Monkeys-esque choruses give singer Forrest Kline's voice a more jangly and more grown-up platform from which to shine.

Their Wednesday, Feb. 23, show at the Venue includes support from Gold Motel, Now, Now Every Children and the acclaimed purveyors of piano-based pop, Jukebox the Ghost. It will also show that Hellogoodbye has left zombies, aliens, vampires and dinosaurs in the dust.
