Groovy! 

Cowtown quartet goes retro by going vinyl-only.

Columbus' The Black Canary hasn't even recorded an album yet, but it's generating a lot of buzz with its throwback-pop originals. "People have been harassing us because we haven't put anything out yet," says David James, who doubles as the quartet's singer and guitarist. "They've bugged us so much that we decided to do a single." Wait no more, gang. At its show tonight in Lakewood, the band will debut its 45, with the dark and moody "Vampire" on the A-side. The "retro-futuristic" single will be on the group's debut CD, Trail of Hearts, to be released in June. "It's actually a polar opposite to what is happening on the scene in Columbus and a lot of places," says James. "What's big is the noise-rock stuff, so it's nice for us to be the choice if you're not into that." The Black Canary swap stage time with the Afternoon Naps at 10 tonight at Bela Dubby, 13321 Madison Avenue in Lakewood. Admission is free. Call 216-221-4479 or visit www.myspace.com/beladubby.
