Girls, Guns & Glory will performing at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23 at Johnson Hall Performing Arts Center, Water Street, in Gardiner. Doors open at 7 p.m.

The decade began with Ward Hayden and several like-minded musicians getting together. Their love for early rock ‘n’ roll, true country, raw blues and pretty much any kind of authentic American music branded them quickly as anomalous — and electrifying. Since that time they’ve barnstormed far beyond their Boston hometown, playing honky-tonks, beer joints and more recently concert venues throughout the U.S. They’ve amassed a loyal legion of fans along the way.

Now, in this milestone year, with Girls, Guns & Glory recording for the first time on its own label, the group has channeled all it’s experienced into its most personal and, paradoxically, hardest-rocking release to date.

Tickets cost $22 and are available from noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday at Johnson Hall’s Box Office, or call 582-7144 or visit johnsonhall.org.
