The Cave Singers @ Little Bar
The seattle trio never listened to much folk music, nor intended to play it. Guitarist and former Pretty Girls Make Graves bassist Derek Fudesco teams up with vocalist Pete Quirk and drummer Marty Lund to produce foot-stomping country drums, melodic guitar picking, and amber-grainy vocals that produce tunes that "roll by nice and easy like a pickup rattling down a country road," says Pitchfork. Support: Elephant Fan. RMB40 (students: 30). Starts at 8 p.m. Saturday, September 18
