7 p.m. Sunday. Chocolate Church Arts Center, 804 Washington St., Bath, $10 in advance, $12 day of show.
Three cool bands for one cool, low price can be yours on Sunday night in Bath. Dead Gowns, fronted by Geneviève Beaudoin, plays indie-folk infused with a garage and sometimes soft-rock sound. Aisha Burns is a singer, songwriter and violinist from Texas who currently resides in Massachusetts. Eliza Edens, based in Philadelphia, is all about alt-folk tunes. Between the three of them, this promises to be a riveting evening of music.
