Music Around Town

Weshly Arms/American Scarecrows/Uptight Sugar

When: Thu., Oct. 15, 8 p.m. 2015

Riding the crest of newfound recognition following Positively Cleveland’s “Cleveland Anthem” marketing video, Welshly Arms is eyeing nothing but blue skies. And rightfully so. This is one of those local bands — one among many, sure — that deserve a broader fan base. Last year, the band dropped a six-song EP, Covers, that revives classics like Sam and Dave’s “Hold On, I’m Coming” and the Chambers Brothers’ “Time Has Come Today.” It’s an exciting roundup of tunes, all of which work really well in Welshly Arms’ throwback rock style. “Two Seconds Too Late” and “The Touch” became much-loved singles over the past year, helping to lift Welshly Arms’ shows to must-see status. And that song in the “Cleveland Anthem” video? That’d be “Never Meant to Be,” which boasts that great, woozy riff we all have stuck in our heads now. Tonight's gig is the first of two this week at the Beachland. (Sandy)
