Wednesday: The SXSW influx continues

The Shackeltons.

Another day, another crop of national acts playing for cheap around town. Fight through that green beer hangover.

At White Water, former Flat Duo Jet Dexter Romweber now tours with his sister Sara (Let's Active, Snatches of Pink). They call themselves the Dexter Romweber Duo and play the same sort of rockabilly/surf/rock 'n' roll that the Flat Duo Jets used to do.  Jack White's a big fan. Neko Case, Cate Power and Exene Cervenka (from X) all guest on the duo's new album, "Ruins of Berlin." 9:30 p.m., $5.

At Circa 76, the Shackletons, from Chambersburg, Penn., play a spirited brand of post-punk. JT Tarpley, of Frown Pow'r, which shares the bill, says they might be the most impressive touring band he's ever seen in LR. And he goes out a lot. Frown Pow'r, you'll remember from the Showcase, do awesomely deranged garage-folk-rock. With lots of hollerin' and stompin', 9 p.m., $5.

At Zack's, Boston's Endway, whose music you might've heard on various MTV "reality" shows, play a free show. The band's lead singer is singing the national anthem at Fenway next month. They're pop-rock-y, 8 p.m.
