Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Murder by Death/Samantha Crain

When: Sat., March 1, 9 p.m. 2014

If the guys in an American tall tale came to life, got drunk on bourbon and started singing songs, they would sound a lot like Murder By Death. This band from Bloomington, Indiana comes to the Grog Shop tonight to play its own blend of indie rock/Americana. Frontman Adam Turla’s gruff vocals are complemented by cello, cornet, accordion, mandolin and theremin. The group’s 2012 release Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon features hard-hitting ballads like “Straight At The Sun” which borders on psychedelic electro-noise while retaining the band’s dusty folk sound. Expect a few fan favorites from their latest release, the Kickstarter-funded As You Wish, an album featuring covers of songs like the Misfits’ “Some Kind Of Hate” and Louis Armstrong’s “What A Wonderful World.” (Gonzalez)
