Hartford based jam/rock group The McLovins will be shining some beautiful lights on Garcia’s at The Capitol Theatre February 20th as they host a CD release party for their latest album Beautiful Lights.

Their fourth full-length studio album, Beautiful Lights, is also the first release written by the band’s current lineup. Produced by Ant Krizan (Spin Doctors), the album marks a turn in the band’s sound and approach to writing. Jake Huffman (drums/vocals) tells that the band, whose members are still in college, has taken a more structured and mature approach to crafting the album. That, however, does not take away from the live performances for which they are recognized and promises for a strong live performance of tracks from their new album after coming off an 11-stop tour in the Southeast last month.

The McLovins have evolved immensely since they gained notoriety from a 2008 basement cover of Phish’s “You Enjoy Myself” posted on YouTube. They draw on eclectic influences to create incredible live performances with intricate improvisation and harmonies. This stage presence has rewarded the band with several festival appearances including Gathering of the Vibes, Mountain Jam and Bella Terra, among others.

Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 day of and available here. Doors: 6pm; Show: 9pm.
