This week, why not make your Tuesday a bit more gritty than usual? The Parlor Mob are in town from Asbury Park, N.J., and though they claim no scene or genre, their dirty rock sounds are definitely an ode to the place where they were all raised. Like many bands, they had visions of reaching the masses and were signed to Capitol, only to be dropped during label mergers and consolidation. You've heard this story before, but the Parlor Mob have dusted themselves off and, after releasing their second album, Dogs, in late 2011, the band is more unified than ever. Check them out tonight at the Griffin.
