The Beets 

When: Sat., Nov. 5, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

For many lo-fi acts, the fine line between charming and cloying doubles as a trip wire. The Crayola-colored cover art that adorns The Beets' albums might paint them as being on the wrong side of that line, but a quick listen to their music reveals that this Brooklyn combo possesses skills and smarts that belie their amateurish persona. On their second full-length this year, Let The Poison Out, the group offers up a collection of shambling (and yes, charming) pop tunes that are as notable for their casual confidence as they are for their melodies. With Olympia, Wash.'s Christmas. —David Raposa
