Embarrassing Fruits, Wesley Wolfe, Wood Ear 

When: Fri., Jan. 7, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $5
Both Embarrassing Fruits and Wesley Wolfe echo a time when indie rock was simpler, before Neutral Milk Hotel's horn-based blasts segued into Sufjan Stevens' big-band delicacy, before IDM and the like turned the floors of dive bars into dance halls. That doesn't mean either band sounds stale, though. On the contrary, the Fruits blast through Pavement and Dinosaur allegiances with the verve of pubescence and the grit of Southern punks. And on his proper debut, Storage, Wolfe sends workman worries like the troubles of childhood and the uncertainty of the future into a handful of guitar chords and a small set of rock 'n' rhythms; he sounds like a champion of perseverance. Opener Wood Ear splits the difference, playing country-ish laments blasted with shambling rock anxiety. —Grayson Currin
