Music Day 1: Glossary

Mufreesboro, Tennessee’s Glossary are a favorite band amongst the alt-country community, and it’s easy to see why: They write good songs and they can raise a ruckus on par with the Drive-by Truckers. Playing a set consisting entirely of new songs, Glossary came across as more fluid and more melodic than they ever appear on disc—especially when it came to the guitar interplay. With luck, the upcoming new record will finally reflect this. For this day show, Glossary were solid, but didn’t display much of the abandon for which they’re known.
