The Holy Mess

Luther Opening for Timeshares at The Fire June 14

Rambunctious melodic punk rockers Luther serve it up tonight at The Fire with that steep incline downhill musical momentum gathering speed from the collection of roll and tumble percussion and guitar that functionally bubbles in concise licks, choosing the opportune moment to raise the heat. That full-head-of-steam sound gets the blood flowing, giving rise to vocals that you’ll find caught in your head on Monday. Tonight, they’ll help celebrate Already Dead (SideOneDummy), the latest release from like-minded New York compatriots Timeshares (with whom Luther released a split 7’’ late last year). The stampeding rock of The Holy Mess infuse slices of melody, while still coming at you ever so hard and fast. The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave., 8:30pm, $7, 21+ - Michael Colavita


An Evening of New Music w/Restorations at The Boot & Saddle Feb. 8

As the rotating banner atop The Boot & Saddle’s website states, this evening will be your chance to hear some new music from anthemic rockers Restorations that will most likely appear on their upcoming album. After the well-received release of LP2 (SideOneDummy Records), it will certainly be interest to get a taste of the new tunes beforehan and then get to hear how they’re captured in the studio by producer Jon Low. Opening the evening will be Dogs on Acid, a new project from Algernon Cadwallader’s Peter Helmis and Joe Reinhart with Nate Dionne (Glocca Morra, ex-Snowing), and also joining the bill are soulful alt rockers The Holy Mess. The Boot & Sadle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $12, 21+ - Alexis V.
