Here's the back story: Three friends from Mars Hill College got together a year or so ago and formed a band, one which they describe as "rock with some progressive leanings and melancholic songwriting." Songs like "Five" and "Katydid" actually fall into crisp grooves and ring with haunting melody. The group — The Luxury Spirit — is frontman Bob Burnette with George Sweet on bass, cello and synth and Matt Aycock on percussion. They'll be at MoDaddy's on Thursday, Dec. 8., 9 p.m. with Curtains, Polar Eye and The Critters. $5. http://theluxuryspirit.com.
