Tonight! Adam Franklin at the Firebird


For fans of guitar aficionados and effects-pedal-laden, swirling jams, it doesn't get much better than this: Adam Franklin -- of Swervedriver, Toshack Highway and Magnetic Morning fame -- is at the Firebird tonight. (The Orbz and Glass Waves open.) According to Shae Moseley's preview this week, Franklin's latest solo album, Spent Bullets, is "full of plaintive love songs built on a foundation of yearning '60s soul, abstract psychedelic sound painting and slow-building dynamics, which lend just the right amount of weight to these free-floating introspections."
