The Parson Red Heads, Ozarks

When: Sat., Aug. 3, 9 p.m. 2013


On the heels of the expansive, folk-tinged Yearling, the Parson Red Heads took a step back—or forward, depending on your perspective—for their upcoming third full-length, Orb Weaver. Eschewing the meticulous prodding of their usual songwriting and recording regimen, the band instead employed Minus 5 maestro Scott McCaughey, who encouraged a no-frills, all-live approach. The result is staggeringly good, and easily the celebrated locals' best effort to date for a group whose Americana roots-rock is given a psychedelic pop-rock facelift. Those eager to hear Orb Weaver will have to be patient, though; tonight's free show sees the band performing their 2007 debut album King Giraffe in full. RYAN J. PRADO
