Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires/Turf War

When: Tue., Feb. 4, 8:30 p.m. 2014

Anticipating a Sub Pop debut later this year, Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires have been leaving their Alabama-tinged mark on rock venues across the country in recent years. Dig 2012’s There is a Bomb in Gilead for a glimpse into the band’s Southern shreddage. Here’s how Bains describes himself, to put it illustratively: “[He] makes music for the foundry worker that writes fiction in his spare time and the college English professor that changes her own oil.” Sounds, uh, interesting to us. Whatever brings you to the band, you’re sure to find a fiery frontman with words for the meandering masses. Dude can play, too. Aside from the “woo”-ish backing vocals, “Centreville” boasts some really terrific lead guitar work. Likewise, “Chochtaw Summer” has the sort of rhythm that’ll keep your ass shaking right on through the week. (Sandy)
