AMERICANA | Angela Perley and Howlin Moons 

Based on her quiet demeanor, it would be almost impossible to peg Angela Perley as the lead singer in a band. But she is, and she's got a serious set of pipes. Perley and her band, The Howlin' Moons, have drawn rave reviews for their latest album "Hey Kid," which genre hops between country, Americana, and rock 'n' roll. Perley's voice is special, but the band's instrumentals — especially guitarist Chris Connor's speedy pentatonic licks — also shine. As good as it is on the album, the band is on a different level when it comes to its live act. My personal favorite jam, "Blue Eyed Lola," perfectly showcases the group's all-around dynamics.

Angela Perley & The Howlin' Moons play on Friday, May 23, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 10:15 p.m. $5. Abilenebarandlounge.com; Angelaperley.com.
