9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $8.

Deer Tick — yet another terribly named band in indiedom — comes to town riding a wave off positive buzz. Few up-and-comers attracted as much attention at SXSW. Since then, the group's been featured in Rolling Stone and, hilariously, on the inaugural webisode of Bri-tunes, NBC anchor Brian Williams' online music interview series (he's got good taste!). Known for blistering live performances, the Providence-based foursome does a revved-up, folk-flecked rock that fans of bands like Lucero and Glossary should appreciate. California's Dawes does a sunnier version of folk-rock in the opening spot.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
