Weekend Warrior, November 18 - 20

Weekend Warrior, November 18 - 20

From the start, in this case - the opening set, Mercury Girls deliver crystalline compositions that appear ready to break loose in precise, instrumental strides as the steady, percussive spring clears a path for the fiery/jangly hybrid of guitar, which at times, forges a path with melting precision and at others, cruises along in a casual, determined pace. All the while, an intricate feathery blend of endearing, elegant vocals cascades among the crisp mountainous air. This evening, Mercury Girls will be leading the way to emotively-fueled Missouri outfit Foxing. Melding refined melody and raw expression, Balance and Composure completes this night at the former Spaghetti Warehouse. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 8:30pm, $20, All Ages - Michael Colavita
