Thursday To-Do: The Boondogs / The See

9 p.m., On the Rocks. $5.

And the prize for the young year's most unlikely bill goes to … Even forgetting that this is happening at On the Rocks — a River Market area club that always draws the out-of-town throngs, most of whom couldn't care less about some local band they've never heard of and spend their bar hours drinking ridiculously cheap beer and staring cock-eyed at the stage — this line-up is just plain strange. For one thing, it's been many moons since the Boondogs played out a weeknight. One fifth of the band lives in Tulsa; everyone else has kids, and late night babysitters, I'm told, are in short supply. But the 'dogs have new music (their fourth full length, “Take Shelter,” came out in November) they're eager to share with fans of cheap beer. Playing in support, the See is a much-buzzed about new-ish, noisy indie rock trio and Father Maple are four musicians who, according to their MySpace page, “play music you like.” Resident DJ Sleepy Genius closes out the night with a blend of “top 40, club classics and bangin' vocal house.”
