The Love Language are a band that get better and better the longer they play together, and I guess that's how it should be. The septet got down to business at Duke Gardens Wednesday night, rocking through all of the songs from their self-titled debut and even playing a handful of new songs.
The now set staple, "Blue Angel" made an appearance again and the band closed a cover of the 60's tune "Hey Mary Lou," made famous by Ricky Nelson. You can listen to a demo of it now on the band's MySpace page.
The show was a local send-off for the band, who is hitting the road on July 25 for a two week tour with Cursive. But fear not, the band will be back home in August and will play a free show with Lost in the Trees in Chapel Hill on August 20. The show is part of the Locally Grown series we wrote about last month.

Hello Mary Lou
("Sparxxx" was in there somewhere too. Thanks to Stuart McLamb for giving us the titles of the new songs.)
