Hardworking Hoboken quintet Wormburner puts an anthemic spin on the tried-and-true indie-guitar-rock formula: Echoes of Springsteen, the Clash, the Pogues and maybe the Gaslight Anthem ring out in the band's succinct vignettes, twanging and swelling around vocalist Steve Henry's forthright, reedy delivery. Tonight it hosts a festive soiree alongside checked-shirt-wearing, acoustic-guitar-strumming alt-country types the East River Bandits.
