Gray Parade, with Lithium Grin and Bustopher Jones, Tuesday, August 15, at 13th Avenue Bar and Grill, isn't a band that's going to bludgeon you into submission with its sound. Instead, the group specializes in swirling, hypnotic psychedelia--mood rock that pays tribute to influences like the Velvet Underground (initially, the act was called Sister Ray) even as it charges boldly into the future. At its best, Gray Parade's music is genuinely seductive--and who among us wouldn't like to be seduced every once in a while?
