Friday To-Do: Glossary, Austin Lucas, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires

Glossary plays White Water Tavern Friday.
  • Glossary plays White Water Tavern Friday.

9 p.m. White Water Tavern.

This is probably the archetypal White Water Tavern show. Glossary and Austin Lucas have an intimate connection with the storied venue and with Travis Hill's Last Chance Records, which has issued several releases from both acts, including Lucas's "Live at the White Water Tavern."

Glossary's latest, "Long Live All of Us," is the band's seventh full-length album, and boasts fantastic playing, with warm-sounding horns and jazzy piano touches. Lucas was recently in town for a house show that Times reviewer Joe Meazle wrote up. "Lucas sings with a great set of finely-tuned pipes that have that high-lonesome sound in spades," Meazle wrote, "and his lyrics are full of piss, vinegar and adolescent angst."

Also playing this show is Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, out of Birmingham, Ala. The band just released a full-length called "There is a Bomb in Gilead." The group's bio describes them as being "as much Wilson Pickett as Fugazi, as much the Stooges as the Allman Brothers," and that sounds like a right-on description to these ears.

All three acts will also play the Lucero Family Picnic on Saturday
