Obits, Gentlemen Jesse, Whatever Brains 

When: Wed., Jan. 12, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $9-10

Brooklyn's The Obits make hardcore-tinged garage rock—the kind of stuff that lots and lots of people love but is out of step with music's supposed bleeding edge. These guys blast out clever, compact punk as if chillwave and the other dozen hedged, context-fueled sub-subgenres never existed—and that's a good thing. Atlanta's Gentlemen Jesse and His Men faithfully re-create the speedy pop of the '70s (Elvis Costello, Big Star when they're not a big bummer) and don't forget the nervous energy, emotionalism and angst either. They've got hooks for days, too. That all may sound easy enough, but it ain't. Openers Whatever Brains gloriously complicate the night even more. —Brandon Soderberg
