Girls Guns & Glory + Sarah Borges

16 Anawan St, Fall River, MA   (view map)

When Girls Guns & Glory won the Best Roots Act honors in the Boston Phoenix’s Best Music Poll in 2009, they wrote, “There are all kinds of ways to approach this category — back-porch ballads, ’70s country twang, amped-up rockabilly two-step — but nobody throws it all together like Girls Guns & Glory, who have perfected so many aspects of old-time Americana that you might as well elect them mayors of Frontiertown. GGG draw from the Slim Cessna’s Auto Club approach to country, mixing it up with mariachi trumpets, voodoo swing beats, sunny guitars, and manic punk tempos. Singer Ward Hayden presides with stoic croons that would probably sound a lot better wailing out of some dusty dashboard speakers in a rusty pick-up truck than through your iPod buds. And if that’s not a sign of a great roots band, what is?” The quartet has gotten twangier and more amped-up since then, as can be heard on their sharp new CD, Good Luck. They’ll celebrate its release with their pal Sarah Borges — who is toasting her new release, Radio Sweetheart. The dynamic double bill is at the Narrows Center For the Arts, 16 Anawan St, Fall River, MA, at 8 pm | $22 advance, $25 day of show | 508.324.1926 |
