Bassist Sam Quinn is definitely going shirtless for part of this gig at the quirky Safety Harbor Art and Music Center (the show is actually the second chance that Bay area fans have at seeing The Black Lillies, since the Tennessee Americana outfit plays Hideaway Café on Friday). The band has essentially reinvented itself over the last three years, and a new album (Stranger to Me) finds the Lillies’ latest lineup— frontman Cruz Contreras, Quinn and drummer Bowman Townsend — all writing songs on what could be the group’s best effort to date.
The Black Lillies, Sat. March 2. Safety Harbor Art and Music Center, Safety Harbor. safetyharborartandmusiccenter.com.
