The name Honey is buzzing like its namesake’s creator in these parts — in December, they took the Rickshaw by surprise opening for Adam Stephens, and a month later they’re invited back again to open for A Decent Animal and Billy & Dolly (8pm, $10).

But who exactly is this band? Young, with barely 10 shows under their belt and merely computer demos, the 7 ladies and men handle charismatic psych-pop numbers with collective effort. From their point of view, Honey’s Moses Montalvo claims the songs are “pop rock’n’roll walls of sound…with emphasis on the rock’n’roll.”

We look forward to hearing more recordings — all that’s been promised so far are two songs in a studio later this month that Honey intends on shopping around for a 7″ release.

Wednesday’s headliners A Decent Animal are relatively new to the neighborhood (moving out from Charlestown, NC a year ago). They’ve settled in to the area quite well, first opening for Band of Horses at the Fox last fall, and now by completing an album in Tiny Telephone Studios with Jay Pellicci to be out this spring.
