Music Scene: The Werks and other area shows set for March 17–23

The Werks



Ohio jam rockers The Werks are set to bring a little “Magic” to Grand Junction.

Touring in support of its new LP (“Magic,” of course), The Werks will play at 8 p.m. Sunday, March 19, at Mesa Theater, 538 Main St.

That’s two days after the album’s release.

With “Magic,” The Werks “transcend their roots while never losing their identity,” according the band’s Facebook page.

“Poignant songwriting and engaging melody come together on a record that showcases their maturation as a multidimensional group of uniquely creative musicians.”

The Werks have released four studio albums in 10 years, beginning with “Synapse” in 2009, and have performed more than 1,000 shows, including the creation of its own music festival, aptly titled The Werk Out.

But “Magic” is “our first truly multi-genre album,” says Chris Houser, the band’s vocalist/guitarist, on the Facebook page.

“Each track has its own unique vibe and sound. We didn’t write these songs to please people, we wrote them because this is what we hear when we turn off the outside and let the creativity flow.”

Tickets to the Mesa Theater show cost $12 in advance or $15 the day of the show. Call 773-1775 or go to mesatheater.com for tickets and information.
