Elim Bolt w/ Gold Light 

When: Fri., May 23 2014
Price: Free

nice and nostalgic indie rock, 9 p.m.

There’s no time like the present to check out the new and improved Big John’s Tavern. Charleston indie rockers Elim Bolt will be headlining a gig there this Friday along with fellow Hearts & Plugs artist Gold Light. Though based in Greenville, Gold Light’s Joe Chang can often be found around these parts, where his band recently filmed a video for the cotton-candy sweet 1950s-esque ballad “True Love Never Dies.” The video features Jess Oliver and Johnnie Matthews of Elim Bolt in a story that has Matthews adorably delivering door-to-door singing telegrams. Gold Light’s brilliant mix of classic and modern styles is the perfect complement to Elim Bolt’s similar old-time rock ‘n’ roll tendencies, a la Roy Orbison, as demonstrated on their debut EP Nude South. Their latest collection Dingy! Slimy! Scummy! detours down a slightly darker but still delightful route with less croons and more dirty garage rock action. —Kelly Rae Smith FRIDAY
