Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Rusted Root

When: Sat., Jan. 17, 8 p.m. 2015

Years removed from their residency in dorm rooms across the U.S., Rusted Root is still writing and performing really great music. The band’s latest album, 2012’s The Movement, displays their penchant for catchy world melodies and often silly lyrical wanderings. Case in point: “Monkey Pants” will get stuck in your head, and you’ll freely admit that that’s not a bad thing at all. Scene spoke with lead singer and guitarist Michael Glabicki when the band rolled through town in 2013. He said that their collective focus is heavily bent toward the stage these days. “We had in mind the live show and what we felt the live show needed,” Glabicki says of the writing process behind The Movement. Each song begins as a seedling of sorts, and eventually grows into a mighty redwood or a wise conifer. Mindful evolution is not only the band’s modus operandi — it’s also the natural state of affairs for the music. No worries, though: They’ll probably bust out “Send Me On My Way” too. (Sandy)
