Gringo Star has been around long enough to have seen dozens of descriptors tossed out in an effort to describe the band’s psych-rock sound (“vintage,” “scruffy,” “feverish” and “soulful” are some of our favorites). The Atlanta-based quintet is no stranger to the Bay area, and this is a chance to see the band in close proximity, for free, just a few days after it released a career-spanning live album, Controlled Burn.

“A lot of my favorite records are old live albums and we’ve always wanted to have a live representation of what we do,” frontman Nick Furgiuele said of the band’s 10-year journey. “I can’t think of a single thing I’d change.”

Gringo Star. Fri., July 19. 10 p.m. No cover. Ella’s Americana Folk Art Café, Tampa. brokenmoldentertainment.com.
