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."

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.
