The Milk Carton Kids At FTC Warehouse

Folk duo the Milk Carton Kids from Los Angeles make gentle folk music with two guitars and beautiful harmonies. Their sound is reminiscent of folk greats Simon and Garfunkel or Aztec Two-Step, and they've also drawn comparisons to Gillian Welch's duets with David Rawlings.

Their bare-bones musical style is both sweet and somber. They released their first two albums, one live and one studio, for free in 2011. Their latest effort, "Monterey," came out last year.

The Milk Carton Kids play the Warehouse at Fairfield Theatre Company on Friday, April 8. Doors are at 7 p.m., with the show starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $35 to $50. Information and tickets: 203-259-1036,
