Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires, Grass Giraffes 

When: Fri., Sept. 7, 9:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $8-9

With the popular music pendulum at or near its synth-pop apex, you can bet there's a back-to-basics, guitar-centric band who'll emerge atop the other side as the "authentic" counterpoint. This Birmingham, Ala., act may lack the Benetton appeal of the Alabama Shakes (with whom they've toured), but they're cut from the same Muscle Shoals soul-rock cloth. Their sound suggests early-'70s Faces spiked with Allman/ Betts guitar jams, plus a whiff of punk left over from their rites of passage through its clubs (Bains did time in the rowdy band the Dexateens). Their debut, There Is a Bomb in Gilead, puns off mishearing the word "balm," but if you could live happily forever without hearing another synthesized dance beat, then balm is what Bomb will be. Grass Giraffes open. —John Schacht
