ROCK | Gringo Star

Within the trend of trying to recapture the sounds of the 60's British Invasion, Gringo Star manages to stand out among the others trying to cop the essence of garage rock's glory days. With its experimental style that carries garage, psychedelic, and surf sounds, the band conjures memories of everyone from the Fab Four — which you should expect, given the name — to The Animals and The Kinks. But the sounds may be reminiscent of older times but the music is the band's own, and listening to "Long Time Gone," the group's fourth studio album, it's interesting to think just how high the ceiling goes for Gringo Star.

Gringo Star plays with The Demos, The Heroic Enthusiasts, and House Majority on Tuesday, October 21, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $8-$12. Bugjar.com; Gringostar.net.
