Lawrence's Hospital Ships plays the Jackpot, 943 Mass., tonight in the band's last show before the official release of the band's sophomore album "Lonely Twin." Led by Jordan Geiger, the band has been experiencing some legitimate buzz with mentions on NPR and Stereogum.com, which described the song "Reprise" as, "Ben Gibbard fronting an uplifting field song dressed in the rousing, blasted fuzz of Neutral Milk Hotel’s 'Holland, 1945.' " Hospital Ships is joined by Ed Masuga and OILS. A Berkeley, Calif. resident, Masuga uses his fragile falsetto to craft some earnest, stripped down folk songs. Come see for yourself tonight at 10 p.m.
