A pirate's life.

The song "Red Sky,'' by Leominster band Bernie's Garage, is a bit of a surprise. The song is written in the voice of a 17th-century privateer, and yet, there's something modern and relatable in the song: "An' I'll brush it off again, pretend that I'm a better man and sail another mile/An' I'll brush it off again, pretend that I'm back home in Dublin where I can't hear the cannon fire.'' That brooding sense of culpability contrasts against the garage rock soundscape, creating a dissonance that's engrossing. It's a good song from a band that certainly bears watching. Bernie's Garage performs with Mama's Marmalade, June & The Bee and The Dead LA at 8:30 p.m. Jan. 3 at the Lucky Dog Music Hall, 89 Green St., Worcester. (508) 363-1888. (Victor D. Infante)
