Editorial Review

Story/Stereo is a very neat local labor of love, a semi-regular event at Bethesda's Writer's Center that brings together authors and musicians for an evening of crossing creative media. After a four-month hibernation, it returns tonight and doubles as the album-release show for local indie rockers the Caribbean, who make slowly unfolding songs in which every sound and every word are meticulously considered. In fact, the songs are meditative more than anything else. This is dreamy music for people who appreciate the subtler aspects of song construction. Authors James Allen Hannaham and Matthew Pitt handle the evening's "story" portion.
