When it comes to spelling, I am a right-wing conservative. Fun, alternate denotations of words fill me with a knee-jerk skepticism, which I am hard pressed to overcome—one of my many character flaws. But, even without that second A, I just can't write off Archeology. Partly it's because they sound a lot like the Indiana Jones version of actual archaeology: dusty, sunny, and clearly more exciting than it is in real life. But mostly it's because they are heartfelt and sincere, with arrangements specifically designed to make my heart swell. Those harmonies, especially live, expunge all thoughts of missing letters from my mind. This show isn't all campfires and sunbeams: Where Archeology are pure-hearted Americana, Tango Alpha Tango are aggressively, wonderfully glam. Lock up your daughters: These guys are seedy and seductive in the best possible way. REBECCA WILSON
