Jamie Randolph & The Darkhorse at Minglewood Hall 

Jamie Randolph & the Darkhorse at Minglewood Hall

A triple-bill at Minglewood Hall features a group of like-minded and similarly promising local acts. Headliner Jamie Randolph got his start earlier in the decade as the lead singer for young radio-rock hopefuls Retrospect but began to find his voice as a solo artist with 2006's Villain. With a new band behind him, Randolph seems to have found the right balance between showcasing his own songwriting and embracing the communal spirit of a good band, as witnessed by sharp, swaggering songs such as "Those Lights" and "East of Downtown." Randolph and the Darkhorse recently released an eponymous debut EP. Jeremy Stanfill has been on a similarly productive path. After starting with buzzed-about heavy band Crippled Nation as a teenager, Stanfill's sound evolved into a more mature, more classic-rock-influenced sound with his subsequent band, Streetside Symphony. As a solo artist, he's continued to add both polish and grit in equal doses, as witnessed by his terrific set at a recent Grammy Showcase at the Hi-Tone Café. Rainy Day Manual round out the bill at the 1884 Lounge at Minglewood Hall Friday, July 16th. Doors open at 9 p.m. Admission is $7. — Chris Herrington
