Free Times - Sound Bites
Saturday, April 16 Josh Roberts & the Hinges — It takes a special brand of talent to be both a crowd favorite and a musician’s musician; perhaps no one — locally, anyhow — exemplifies that kind of gap-bridging talent better than Josh Roberts and the Hinges. Musically dynamic yet accessible, lyrically poetic and fist-pump chant-worthy, the Hinges pack venues with their heady yet noodle-worthy tunes, yet their cohesive tightness and stellar harmonies (not to mention Roberts’ heroic guitar playing) still leave the most hardened musicians slack-jawed. P. Wall The House: 8 p.m., $10 ($8 advance); 253-7888, thehouse5points.com. Patrick Wall
