Smart Bets: Golden Animals

Being the opening act can be a thankless task, what with playing to a crowd who didn’t come to see you and taking the less-glamorous early slot. But it’s also a chance to roll out your best new material and, in 30 minutes or so, turn a room full of strangers into your newest disciples. That’s probably what will happen when Brooklyn-based four-piece Golden Animals (Tommy Eisner on guitar/vocals and Linda Beecroft on drums/vocals) opens for “party music for coyotes drunk on champagne” act He’s My Brother She’s My Sister at the Grey Eagle. All reverb and velvety darkness, Golden Animals crafts a spooky world of intrigue, recalling the Doors and Jefferson Airplane, filtered through the Black Keys. Tuesday, July 17, 9 p.m. $8 in advance or $10 day of the show.
