GLOSSARY
10 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

Joey Kneiser’s lyrics walk that thin line between Saturday night and Sunday morning, between drunken revelry and clear-eyed redemption. On his song “Days Go By,” the Glossary front man sings “But I’ve got a Bible, baby/With the shape of a whiskey bottle cut out/A whole lot of living left in me/One foot in heaven and a dirty mouth.” The Murfreesboro band often gets tagged as alt-country, but aside from pedal steel and few plaintive ballads here and there, the band usually sounds more like Dinosaur Jr. than Steve Earle. Backing harmony courtesy of Kneiser’s wife, Kelly, adds a buoyant touch to the mix, too. Two Cow Garage, a charged-up rock outfit from Columbus, Ohio, supports. Micah Schnabel leads the group with a voice familiar to roots rock fans — booze-weathered, smokey and drawled. Both Glossary and Two Cow Garage appear at White Water en route to the Lucero Family Picnic. Kyoto Boom, a new local group built around former Mulehead-guitarist Dave Raymond and Ashtray Babyhead lead-singer Scott Cook, plays its first show as the opening act.
