Local Band, Local Beer: Octopus Jones, Jenny Besetzt, Flash Car 

When: Thu., Aug. 13, 9:30 p.m. 2015
Price: free
Octopus Jones migrated here from South Carolina three years ago, cut a terrific record called Phantasmagoria and immediately lost a core member. The new El Guapo Sessions suggests that they've lost little, instead reorienting their sound to shed some excess and craft incisive pop songs that incorporate flashes of Bowie and the Buzzcocks without getting lost. Worry that there are too few new bands making good records? Don't miss these. OCTOPUS JONES: With Jenny Besetzt and Flash Car, 9:30 p.m., free, 218 S. Blount St., Raleigh, 919-833-7795, www.tnnirishpub.com.
