KEYSTONE – The web poll for Echoset’s website reads, ” What do you think about there being three gals and one guy in Echoset now?” The response options: — “The more women the better!” — “I liked half & half”; — and “Who cares? They still rock!” The resounding response from 62.5 percent of the site’s voters is that gender doesn’t matter when it comes to this indie-rock band hailing from Austin, Texas, which rocks the Snake River Saloon in Keystone on Thursday night with opening band All Capitals.”We play very different music than all the girl bands,” Rae Goldring, bass player for Echoset, said.Goldring compares the band’s sound to modern bands like The Killers and Modest Mouse.”Throw in a little U2 there for good measure,” she said.The quartet, rounded out by Beth Puorro on vocals, drummer Michael Hayden and Sarah Glynn on lead guitar, has been a band for five years. But Glynn is the well-received newbie of the band, having come on board just a few months ago.This trip out west will be the band’s fifth.”We’re trying to gear up and just get our music out there to more people,” Goldring said.The band hasn’t yet signed with a label, but has drummed up some interest. Echoset just put out a new EP and is starting on a new album this fall.”We all have a very deep sense of passion about what we’re playing and we’re all fortunate to be really, really good friends,” Goldring said.She describes most of the band’s songs as being about love and relationships and the human condition.”But you’d probably never figure that out from listening to our lyrics,” she said.Jennifer Harper can be contacted at (970) 668-3998, ext. 248, or at
