Sweet Howlmony 

When Atlanta's Howlies take the stage, you might just be part of the gig.

In just a half of a year, Atlanta's Howlies have pooled together (established? built?) a devoted fan base of celebs and nobodys alike. Perhaps it's their onstage acrobatics in the midst of smoke and flashing lights that have awed audiences. Maybe it's their four-part "howlmonies" that keep their booking agent busy. Certainly, their ritual of passing out tambourines during concerts lets bar patrons get in on the jamming. Even actor Keanu Reeves applauded the quartet in an article he wrote for the teen zine Tiger Beat. "I dig it, dude," he said. "The first I heard this band, all I could say was, 'Whoa!'" The Howlies take the stage at 10 tonight at Now That's Class, 11213 Detroit Avenue. Admission is free. Call 216-221-8576 or visit
Mon., Jan. 28, 10 p.m., 2008
