Catch Centro-Matic at Grimey's for free at 3:30 p.m. today, or if you've got one of them there jobs, you can fork over the $8-$10 to see them tonight with Glossary at Mercy Lounge. From our Critics' Picks:

Denton, Texas’ Centro-Matic are understated craftsmen, and their earthy fuzzed-out brand of rock is as unassuming as it is meticulously crafted. The songs often manage to sound like the wide open spaces of Texas—well, Texas in 2008, the desolation of sprawl as opposed to cowboys and barbed wire. The band recently released Dual Hawks, a double LP featuring work by both of frontman Will Johnson’s musical projects: Centro-Matic did one disc, South San Gabriel did the other. Since the bands share so many members it seems like a strange collaboration, but one that works well, exposing Johnson’s diversity as a songwriter. Opening up are local legends Glossary, whose earnest Southern rock has recently caught the attention of some excellent regional touring acts, keeping the ’Boro stalwarts on the road all summer. 3:30 p.m. at Grimey's; 9 p.m. at Mercy Lounge —LEE STABERT
