Notes on Girls Guns and Glory and new happenings in Worcester
Girls, Guns, & Glory
GIRLS GUNS & GLORY, WBCN Rumble winners and apparently big fans of early Johnny Cash, celebrate the release of their third CD, Inverted Valentine, May 2 at the Middle East downstairs, with support from the EVERYDAY VISUALS. . . . Crack open a frosty liter of Polar Orange Dry and get psyched about Wormtown. We know that Saturday night doesn't typically scream Worcester, but who needs screaming anyhow? Legendary Central Mass guitarslinger BOBB TRIMBLE (whose magical Iron Curtain Innocence was recently reissued by Secretly Canadian) is making a rare appearance May 3 at Ralph’s as part of the PREFAB MESSIAHS, joined by the ODDS and the PERFORMERS. If that ain’t worth a handful of toll quarters, we don’t know what is. . . . If the buzz surrounding Baltimore's WYE OAK isn't music to your ears, certainly the openers of their show at Great Scott on May 4 will be: DREW O’DOHERTY, HANDS AND KNEES, and BARN BURNING promise to make this a full night of fresh, young Americana — meaning not only do they have their chops in order but all their major teeth are accounted for. . . . Singer/pianist JENNIFER GREEN starts a free Wednesday residency at Toad May 7. Expect literary, sensual art pop from Green, who was just named “best pop artist” by Verbicide magazine in its “Unsigned Artist” issue.
