There's nothing too new about Cataldo, the mostly-but-not-always-solo project of Eric Anderson. He's a guy who writes head-bobby pop songs with simple chords on acoustic guitar, banjo or piano, and most of them are about the most universal pop theme of all time: love. But there's a reason why this stuff works - with lyrics so carefully conversational, Cataldo is just helplessly infectious. Anderson recently toured with Laura Veirs and usually plays his shows with a rotating cast of familiar local musicians. It's really just a bunch of friends having fun onstage--the perfect, sunny sound for the summer. With Loch Lomond, Kyle Bradford. MARY PAULINE DIAZ
