After a year-long hiatus, the self-described “pop-rockish” band Context Clues is back. Led by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Merrill (The Seas, SNAFU Kitties), this band mixes indie guitar rock with nods to ’90s ska and ’60s pop. The lyrics are clever and observational, and the music is upbeat and catchy. Context Clues plays its first show in more than a year on Oct. 11 at Beauty Bar. “Hopefully this will be the first of many shows to come!” told us via Facebook.
