If you’re unfamiliar with the band Glorietta, you’ve been seriously missing out. The “unlikely singer-songwriter super group” helmed by the one-and-only Matthew Vasquez are everything you hope for when you venture out to see live music. It may sound like hyperbole, but as someone who has seen his share of shows, I swear to you that it’s true.
