After a few years on hiatus, the Two Gallants have broken their silence with a new album, The Bloom and the Blight. Recovering from a serious van accident, band member Adam Stephens picked up the pen and began to write emotionally poignant lyrics and harmonies; in many ways, the album reflects the duo’s separate journeys during their passage to adulthood in the years apart. The Two Gallants’ guitar and drums fuse together to create roaring and sweeping sounds on Friday, Dec. 6, at Sweetwater Music Hall. 19 Corte Madera Ave., Corte Madera. 9pm. $20—$22. 415.388.1100.
