The psych-rock outfit Gringo Star has been described as a “’60s beach party on acid,” and with musical influences ranging from The Stooges to The Kinks to Sam Cooke, that sounds about right. Musicians and brothers Nicholas and Peter Furgiuele and cohort Chris Kaufmann put forth the band’s latest, self-produced album, Floating Out to See, which plays like a “long-forgotten Polaroid excavated from the bottom of some mysterious thrift-shop bin, scanned into a computer, emailed to your smartphone and Instagrammed with a nice washed-out filter,” according to a press release. The band puts in an appearance at The Grey Eagle on Saturday, June 21, at 9 p.m. Camp David and Nest Egg also perform. $10. thegreyeagle.com.
