If it weren’t for bands like Girls Guns and Glory and performers like Sarah Borges, it is doubtful Concerts at the Crossing would still be rocking Titusville after 19 seasons. This is exactly the kind of group that almost makes us want to rethink our decision to wind down the series.

For the past eight years, Boston’s Girls Guns and Glory have been making a name for themselves through relentless touring (about 200 gigs a year worldwide), the release of four critically acclaimed records, a slew of local awards, including being the Boston Music Awards first act of its genre to win Act of the Year, and international awards (Independent Artist of the Year at the French Country Music Awards). And, now, the hard-working band is refining their focus to the roots of rock ‘n’ roll with a twist of country on their fifth album, Good Luck.

The foursome (Ward Hayden on vocals/guitar, Paul Dilley on electric and upright bass/piano, Josh Kiggans on drums/percussion, and Chris Hersch on lead guitar/banjo) found inspiration for this record from early ’50s rock ‘n’ roll icons such as Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, and Buddy Holly, as well as country greats like Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.

Rolling Stone describes Sarah’s music as “friendly pop-rock with bits of twang, rockabilly, and ‘50’s pop,” and The New York Times described her as a “modern-minded honky tonker with a retro streak.” An equally apt description comes from Paste magazine, which wrote, “she has all the good parts of Sheryl Crow’s sound without the L.A. pop suckdom.” Her first release, as a solo artist, Radio Sweetheart is receiving rave reviews. Expect to hear songs from that album as well as some of her earlier work this evening.

Whatever you do, don’t miss this rocking night at the Crossing.
