When: Tue., Dec. 29, 8 p.m. 2015
On A Tribute to Hank Williams, Boston’s Girls Guns and Glory, well, pay tribute to Hank Williams. The album is composed of several of the country godfather’s most timeless tunes, as well as a selection lesser-known deep cuts. Each is presented with a deep reverence to Hank. But the band infuses their own inimitable honky tonk style into the words and music of “the Hillbilly Shakespeare,” raising the record well above mere hero worship. Catch Girls Guns & Glory at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge this Tuesday, December 29. Maine country-rockers the Mallet Brothers open.
Price: $10/12. AA
