"Gigs to storm the doors for: Songdog: "In her heart I think she'd like me dead/ Second best, she sleeps with me instead." Who could resist the opening lines of Goodbye Isabel, from Songdog's EP? This British band has a knack for excavating the tiny mad tragedies of daily life, and inflating them into comic, threatening dirigibles. Only Lyndon Morgans, the Welsh-born songwriter and strangle-voiced lead singer, is making the journey across the pond, but his lead-off show is a must-see."
