When Orange County’s Limbeck hit the scene in 2000, they leaned heavily on nondescript emo and soft-punk, but subsequent albums have seen the band transform into a more twangy, melodically driven alt-country act. Opening for Limbeck’s 7 p.m. show at the Turner Hall Ballroom tonight is John Ralston, a Floridian who specializes in Dashboard Confessional-styled heart-on-sleevery, but more interesting are a pair of local warm-up acts. Juniper Tar have mastered the art of clean, catchy and gimmick-free Americana—tonight they’ll be celebrating the release of their latest album, To The Trees—while The Candliers kick up a messy, celebratory sound that nods to the cheery music of yesteryear.
