Capstan Shafts, Le Weekend 

When: Fri., Jan. 28, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $8

Dean Wells, the lo-fi auteur behind The Capstan Shafts, claims as many as two dozen releases, but the Shafts are a band raised in captivity. Prior to last year, though, he had played live a handful of times. (Excuse him if he looks sallow, OK?) Like Robert Pollard's work, Wells' songs are generally brief and quite catchy, sharing similar anglophile predilections down to the British lilt of his vocals. His latest, Revelation Skirts, is the first he's recorded with a band. He rewards it with brash, punchy material; at heart, he's looking to charm you with well-crafted rock. —Chris Parker
