The Moaners, Embarrassing Fruits, Grand Champeen 

When: Sat., Oct. 23, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $6

This extraordinary triple bill offers The Moaners a chance to showcase their eclectic third album, Nocturnal. It mediates their bluesy aggression with greater finesse and a meditative vibe that harkens back to the moodiness of frontwoman Melissa Swingle's former Trailer Bride. Embarrassing Fruits purvey prickly indie rock with a winsome melancholy, reminiscent of '90s Merge mainstays Butterglory and Sebadoh. Austin's Grand Champeen is the biggest treat and surprise: Inspired by The Replacements ragged moxie but with bigger hooks, their rock blends the vigor of drunken garage-twang buzz and power-pop insistence. —Chris Parker
