Gunstreet Glory will be performing at The Comet on January 13 with the Bad Things, Bat Country and Bakelite 78. It should be a great evening of boozy rock, tinged with accordions and clarinets. Gunstreet Glory, who released their first album in 2011, celebrate swaying drunken courage like Bukowski poems. They’re the perfect match for The Comet’s crowd, and pairing them with the Bad Things will make for night of music that exists outside of time (be on your guard for time travelers). The music is organic, and full of mad energy. Gunstreet Glory and the Bad Things could be described as steam punk bands, which is not to say that there will be Tesla coils and lots of unnecessary clockwork, as much as to say that there is a certain carnival vibe – a little bit of hobo, a dash of eastern Europe, a sprinkling of Jules Verne. It’s an aesthetic born of literature which, when translated to music, is as tactile as a waxed mustache. You could argue that it’s all a little bit contrived, but if you enjoy the conceit, then you’re in for a great time.
Doors: 8 p.m.
