Tonight local power-rock trio Manx celebrates the release of its new self-titled album and kicks off a long week of Halloween themed shows while headlining a huge lineup at the Blue Monk. The group's new release offers eight tracks of revved-up, catchy classic rock made for fist pumping. The album is packed with hooks and melodies, anchored by some superbly belted-out vocals that waste no time in getting to the point. They hit their stride on tracks like "Hopeless Case," where bassist John Barnaby and guitarist Thomascyne Ryther echo and trade vocals through the chorus, providing just over two minutes of pure power-pop bliss. All the tracks are well balanced, with enough fresh and creative energy in each quick burst to pull you in, but never lingering long enough to wear out their welcome. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
