The Tin Roof presents a holiday showcase on Friday with a reunion set from the Hip Young Gunslingers, an indie-rock trio comprised of drummer/guitarist Brett Nash and guitarists Taylor Townes and Zander Lyvers. Sometimes referred to as the Young Gun Hipbreakers, the band was based in the Charleston scene in the late 2000s, before Townes relocated to N.C. and signed on as warehouse manager at Merge Records. “We were just three dudes who bonded over artisanal cheese, beer, and Pavement,” Townes says. “We decided to start an OK rock band just for funsies.” They share the stage with eclectic guitar/synth rock local trio Sleepy Eye Giant and pop/rock combo Go for Launch. Music starts around 9 p.m.
