Cherry Glazerr keeps it chill at ACL Fest 2019

The trio from Los Angeles played the VRBO stage Friday afternoon.

AUSTIN, Texas — If you ever went to a DIY house party in college, you’ve heard a band that wants to sound like Cherry Glazerr.

The trio from Los Angeles played a set at the VRBO stage Friday afternoon during Weekend 1 of the Austin City Limits Music Festival. Blessedly, the stage was in the shade for the 2:45 p.m. set time. 

Cherry Glazerr's sound is somewhere between beachy and grungy. Sometimes, the guitar parts that lead guitarist and vocalist Clementine Creevy played had a jangly, poppy quality, while other times, they were heavier and more distorted. Occasionally, both sounds happened in the same song, keeping the audience bouncing on their toes.

Creevy is a good frontwoman, always in motion. Her vocals are dreamy and soft, but the best moments of Cherry Glazerr's ACL set were the times she let loose. 

Twice, Creevy maniacally cackled in the middle of a song. A few times, she ripped into an impressive guitar solo. And during the final song of the set, Creevy turned her back to the microphone stand, tilted her head back and sang a lyric upside down in a show of rock 'n' roll pizazz. 

If you missed Cherry Glazerr during Weekend One of ACL, you can catch them at the same time, on the same stage next Friday.
