Button Openers


“The Pioneer” by Jim Button Band:

When you have a name like Jim Button, you don’t futz around with silly band names. The Jim Button Band, a delightfully poppy quartet, may remind local audiences of Kelpie, the former Lawrence-based project of Button accomplice Casey Burge. The two are a match made in singer-songwriter heaven, employing similarly expressive chord voicings and offbeat changes. The most fortuitous aspect of the duo’s pairing, however, may be their immaculate harmonies. With drummer D.J. Lawrence and bassist Brandon Knocke anchoring a tight rhythm section, the newish group has been turning heads and spreading good cheer to sideswiped crowds throughout the area. Button and crew visit the Replay Lounge in Lawrence (946 Massachusetts, 785-749-7676) at 10 tonight to set the stage for the Texas rockers in Lomita.
