Glass Magnet (Black Lillies side project)
January 20 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Special Sunday show at the Q (brick building behind the brewery). If you haven’t heard of Knoxville, TN rock trio “Glass Magnet”, it is for good reason. At the time of this writing, they don’t have a website nor recorded music, and their live performances have been relegated to less than 10 dates, mostly in California. But all that may soon change for the trio, whom most days make up three fourths of Americana stalwarts “The Black Lillies”. With set lists comprised mostly of guitar wizard Dustin Schaefer (ex Mickey and the Motorcars) and sad rock crooner Sam Quinn (ex the everybodyfields)’s solo recorded material, Glass Magnet are building a 2018 schedule of select performances, as their full time touring with The Black Lillies permits. As Cruz Contreras, their friend and bandleader in The Lillies generously enthuses, “Glass Magnet is equal parts genius and teetering decadence…. lightning in a bottle….imagine sharp and twisted hip hop rhymes infiltrating the world’s stankiest garage band.”
