CWMA Showcase: Paul Jacobsen & the Madison Arm, Michael Gross & the Statuettes, The Continentals, Parlor Hawk

This powerhouse of a showcase has four singular-sounding bands for your perusal. Paul Jacobsen and the Madison Arm were voted into the CWMA finals in 2010, thanks to their combination of intelligent songcraft and excellent musicianship. You can say the same of Michael Gross and the Statuettes, who were voted into last year’s finals but had to miss the show due to touring obligations; clearly their sound is getting them notice beyond Utah’s borders. The Continentals ornate instrumentation was showcased on two releases last year, but this band certainly knows the value of letting open spaces into their songs as much as adding another horn or xylophone. And Parlor Hawk’s yearning, slightly twangy approach has garnered them both a large following inside Utah and attention beyond the borders as well. Velour, 135 N. University Ave., 7:30 p.m., $6
