The Long Goodbye

By Fritz Hahn

As we've reported before, Alice Despard recently sold Arlington indie-rock hangout Galaxy Hut to longtime bartender Lary Hoffman. Lary took over on the first of September, which happened to be the same day Alice pulled her last bartending shift.

This Saturday night, Alice returns to Galaxy Hut -- as a musician. She's celebrating the release of her newest record, "Vessel," at a showcase for singer-songwriters. (Arms of Kismet, Graham Davies, Rob McColley and Kowtow Popof are also on the bill.) Alice told me last month that "Vessel" was a different approach for her: mostly acoustic guitar, very sparse arrangements. For this show, she will be accompanied solely by drummer Evan Pollack.

There's no cover charge yet -- Lary says that won't start until October -- and everything gets underway around 9:30.
