Goldmines/Toma Doe/Packwolf

When: Sat., Nov. 25, 9 p.m. 2017

Sporting a heavy dose of psychedelic garage rock and a fine blend of open-chord strumming and tight indie-rock riffs, Goldmines have been putting on great shows and “making sound guys sweat since 2014.” We’re pretty eager to see where they take this project. Part of various Venn diagrams in the community (guitarist Mandy Look and drummer Roseanna Safos also perform in Part-Time Lover, for instance), Goldmines share that burgeoning vision of Cleveland independent rock ‘n’ roll -- part reverb, part distortion, a notch along the same double helix of, e.g., Northeast Ohio’s Black Keys DNA. Check out their self-titled EP, released last year. It’s a breezy listens that works as well with a bowl and a couch as with a grungy dance floor in Cleveland Heights. We dig the heights reached during the chorus of “The Incomparable” and the Liz Phair-esque insouciance of “September,” a real road trip of a song. And also check out “Roll With It,” recorded as part of the Live at Bad Racket series, for a dose of their latest. (Eric Sandy)
