After seven months on the scene, Purses is coming to a somewhat abrupt end. The six-man project boasts no fewer than nine associated acts, including Modern Skirts, Tedo Stone, The District Attorneys and Grand Vapids, just to name a few. The band’s sound recalls some of the best of early-to-mid-2000s indie rock with a subtle Americana spin. The group’s debut album, Obsess Much, released in April on new local label Laser Brains, is one of the local highlights of the year. If you haven’t been able to see Purses live during its brief existence, you have one last chance Saturday at the Caledonia, where the bill also features openers Palace Doctor and Blue Blood.
