Thursday To-Do: Destry / Bear Colony



8 p.m., Vino's.

The members of Destry and Bear Colony shouldn't have any trouble finding something to talk about. Both acts were spawned by long-distance collaborations. Back in 2005, Little Rock's Vince Griffin shared with musician friends all over the country songs he wrote while bedridden. In 2007, those songs became “We Came Here to Die Die” and inspired the indie-rock collective to solidify enough to tour fairly steadily since then (even if the line-up has occasionally shifted). Destry is the brainchild of Michelle DaRosa, formerly of Straylight Run. Last year, she collaborated with a group of musician friends, much like Griffin, by e-mailing song sketches back and forth. That work led to the just-released LP “It Goes On,” a stark collection of moody pop. The Holy House and Modoc open.
