When: Sat., Oct. 31, 8 p.m. 2015
Though we wouldn’t quite call the Bright Light Social Hour’s Space Is Still the Place a concept album, it has a thematic thread. For its sophomore full-length, the Austin-based psych-rock quartet pondered the notion of a “future South” and what the sociopolitical landscape might look like below the Mason-Dixon line in years to come. Like the dark, southern-fried riffage that surrounds it, the band’s pointed lyrical observations are chilling and unflinching. Still, Space is ultimately a hopeful gaze into the crystal ball. TBLSH play the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington on Saturday, October 31, with SWIMM and locals the Snaz.
