This week

The New England alt-country scene gets spotlight treatment on Friday. At One Longfellow Square, 181 State St., local favorite Roy Davis and his band celebrate the release of “We Are a Lightning Bolt” while hosting a taping party for a live CD and DVD. The Boston-based band Girls Guns & Glory shares the bill. Admission is $8, and music starts at 8 p.m.

Down the street at Space Gallery, 538 Congress St., three bands team up for some serious stepping out: the Molenes, the Coming Grass and the Grassholes share the bill. Music starts at 8 p.m.; admission is $7.

If you’re an Americana fan, it doesn’t get much better.
