They're calling it a groove fest, but I'm telling you it's a lot more. Groove rock has moved beyond the hippies who birthed it to include angrier, grittier, jazzier, and more rock overtones. But just like its long-haired forefathers, it welcomes all with open ears. Just dig this swirling lineup. On Friday you'll get PharmHouse, George Wesley Band, Minds Open Wide, Universe Shark, and Meta Accord. On Saturday its Run For The Roses, Upstate Inner Planets, White Woods, and Experimental Sandwich.
Groove Fest takes place Friday, April 19, and Saturday, April 20, at Montage Music Hall, 50 N. Chestnut St. Shows start at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $7/night, $10/both nights. themontagemusichall.com.
