John Gassett

Having served in such notable Dayton bands such as the Fire Science and Goatherd, local scene stalwart John Gassett turned a musical corner last year with his self-released Makeher disc. Centered around his haunting vocals and lyrical themes both direct and abstract, the three songs takes numerous cues from the esoteric offerings from Radiohead, resulting in a deeply atmospheric presentation. Standout “On the Decline” is a seething screed, which melds delicate acoustic guitar work into an epic guitar meltdown conclusion. As recorded by Nik Wells, Makeher reveals an excellent songwriting talent among the field of Dayton hopefuls. John Gassett will perform on Thursday, April 14 at Blind Bob’s, 430 E. Fifth St. Also on the bill are Israel Parker, Chris McCoy, Henry Daggs and Brandon Hawk. Doors open at 9 p.m. Admission is $5 for 21 & up. For more information visit makeher.bandcamp.com.
