Gasoline Grace at Murphy's 

This Saturday night, the relatively new Memphis alt-rock group Gasoline Grace will celebrate the release of its debut full-length album, Hearts on Fire. The band — a trio composed of longtime local music-scene veterans Melanie Isaksen (bass, vocals), Robert Allen Parker (guitar, vocals), and Angela Horton (drums) — came together after a chance meeting at the Delta Girls Rock Camp in 2008, which Horton helps organize and where all three serve as volunteer counselors. After hitting it off at the camp that summer, the trio started regularly jamming on cover songs for fun in Horton's living room. The band gigged around town and polished its new material for most of 2010 before going into the studio late that year with local producer/engineer Kyle Johnson at his Rocket Science Audio facility. The final results of those sessions became Hearts on Fire, which accurately captures the rootsy, vintage-punk style of the band, which owes several nods to SoCal punk legends X. Gasoline Grace plays Murphy's Saturday, November 26th, with Whose Army? and Dynaflow. Showtime is 10 p.m. Admission is $5 or $8 with a copy of Hearts on Fire. — J.D. Reager
