As Guts Club, New Orleans songwriter Lindsey Baker has dropped three albums of bare, visceral folk music, with the latest—this year’s self-released Trench Foot—representing the singer and guitarist’s first foray into full-band performance. The record’s grimly accented Americana calls to mind the late Jason Molina’s transition from solo gloom merchant to cosmic bandleader with Magnolia Electric Co., or Circuit des Yeux’s Haley Fohr’s brief sojourn as anti-country avatar Jackie Lynn. Saturday’s show also features the local talents of indie act Little Gold, which has thankfully returned after a hiatus, as well as Georgia Dish Boys, whose atmospheric folk took a yowling, fuzz-soaked turn on last year’s Get Gone.
LITTLE GOLD Local group playing garage-rock with country and pop sensibilities.
GUTS CLUB Alias of New Orleans singer-songwriter Lindsey Baker. See Calendar Pick on p. 20.
