Around Hear: Mr. Gnome Tastes Like... 

And more local music news

Mr. Gnome has a new EP, Tastes Like Magic, available as a seven-inch single and download. The two songs are leftovers from the Heave Yr Skeleton sessions.

"They just didn't seem to fit on the album," says singer Nicole Barille. "One is extremely poppy, and the other is probably the heaviest song we've ever written — pretty old-school Gnome sound."

Take a listen or buy it at mrgnome.bandcamp.com.

Don Jamieson, co-host of VH1's That Metal Show, will perform a standup comedy set to open a solo show by Tim "Ripper" Owens on Friday, March 26, at Akron's Tap House (491 E. Waterloo Rd.). Doors open at 8 p.m.; it's free. Owens will play covers and songs from his catalog as half an unplugged duo with former US Metal guitarist Scott Jones. In September, Owens will mount his second solo tour. He'll play shows in Norway, Poland and Italy. European headbangers can expect solo tunes and material from Judas Priest, Beyond Fear and his other projects.

The Bridge Party has a new album nearly ready. It won't be available for the band's show on Saturday, March 27, at the Symposium (11802 Detroit Ave., Lakewood) — but the electronic/dance group will be passing out free CDs from Shinto, the Minneapolis label that will release the album. The concert will also be the debut of A View So Cruel (originally Man 009), a new electronic project from members of Lestat.

Lowly, the Tree Ghost headline a late show at the Grog Shop (2785 Euclid Hts. Blvd.) on Saturday, March 27. The five-member indie-rock orchestra recorded its new EP, Whatever Goes, Let It Go! at Cleveland Audio studios with producer Ryan Foltz (the Nick Wolff Band, Gunfire! Getdown). Bethesda and Christopher Black open. Doors 10 p.m.; cover $5.
