Gold and Glass

comment

Formed a little more than a year ago, the rock quartet Gold and Glass has recently graduated from house parties to the club circuit. In press materials, band members describe their sound as 'The Boss co-writing with Tom Petty for Morrissey singing with Foreigner," and their influences ranging from Le Tigre to Patsy Cline " a self-assessment that's almost completely incomprehensible, but once you listen, weirdly accurate. Singer Sam Houston's deep, dark voice weaves a spooky, Morphine-like thread through sometimes-countrified classic rock, and on occasion, the dual guitars simply break out and shred. The group's set still includes a liberal sprinkling of covers; the band is still audibly figuring it out, but it's a fascinating process to hear it find its voice. The jammy, '70s-influenced guitar-rock group Burning Castles opens. Free admission. — Alison Fensterstock
