Downtown Mountain View will host an all-ages night of eclectic, original pop music from three bands, ranging from local to international, performing for the coffee-and-tea sippers on Castro Street this Friday, Dec. 2. East Bay-based New Spell's sound is keyboard-centric dark indie pop with female vocals by Oakland's Leanne Kelly, while Redwood City's The Corner Laughers (led by Palo Alto Weekly Arts and Entertainment Editor Karla Kane) has been called by the Guardian "sassy and smart, intelligent and intricate, twee with bite." Both acts have recently released new singles, the proceeds of which are being donated to charity. Joining the bill, all the way from Berlin, Germany, is Sacramento-native and frequent Corner Laughers collaborator Anton Barbeau, whose psych-pop music has been described by PopMatters as intelligent, quirky and "never ever boring." The free performances run 8-10 p.m. at Red Rock Coffee, 201 Castro St., Mountain View. Go to Red Rock.
