Overmountain Men, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Project Percolator, Nashville Pussy (3/27/2010

Posted By on Sat, Mar 27, 2010 at 8:57 AM

Nashville Pussy The Amazonians, guitarist Ruyter Suys and bassist Karen Cuda, are reason enough to head out for the face-down-in-the-gutter, Southern hard rock of Nashville Pussy. Hell raisin' is a given when the Atlanta quartet pounce on the crowd with unabashed punk energy, fueled by cheap whisky, shattered guitars, and "Daisy Duke Gone Wild" shenanigans. What else do you need on a friggin' Saturday night? With Green Jelly, Psychostick, and 25 Minutes to Go. Tremont Music Hall (Shukla)

Jim Weider's Project Percolator Veteran guitarist Jim Weider has put in stints with The Band and is a current member of the Levon Helm Band. His latest recording, Pulse is an improv-enthused instrumental exploration of groove-laden rock with a sprinkling of something for everyone – funk, jazz, blues, sinewy psychedelic riffs. Weider's nimble fingers goad his Telecaster into genre-hopping singing. With Actual Proof. Double Door Inn (Shukla)

Japandroids/A Sunny Day in Glasgow Snug Harbor continues a welcome trend of booking current "it" acts that typically see CLT from their van's windows on their way somewhere hipper. Vancouver's Japandroids are a self-proclaimed "two-piece trying to sound like a five-piece" with a pummeling brand of garage rock-angst yanked into the 21st century. Philly-based A Sunny Day Is Glasgow is all guitar shimmer and thrumming groundswell, a "nu-gaze" shoegaze outfit (more Slowdive than MBV) run through that deliciously hazy 4AD filter – the vocals of twin sisters Robin and Lauren Daniels make Cocteau Twins comparisons practically inevitable, but this is no mere copy-catting. Btw: By the time you read this, likely sold out. With locals Weekenders. Snug Harbor (Schacht)

Overmountain Men David Childers disbanded his last act, the Modern Don Juans, to devote more time to his day job, various artistic endeavors, and not banging his head against the "members only" Americana door. Touring, too, had become onerous. So when Avett Brothers bassist and longtime fan Bob Crawford suggested a part-time side-project that Childers could engage when he felt like it, and Crawford's Avetts' busy sked allowed, it just made sense. So does Glorious Day, out now on Ramseur Records, which suggests Mr. Childers hasn't lost a thing in the interim. Live? Few deliver the goods with more conviction. With Ken Will Morton at the Thirsty Beaver Saloon. (Schacht)
