FROWN POW'R / THE SEE
9:30 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $5.

Once upon a time, this was supposed to be a celebration of the release of Frown Pow'r's debut album, “Don't Doubt It, Shout It.” But duplication goes slow, artwork takes forever and here we are with what the boys are billing as a pre-release show. You know, to whet your appetite. Any excuse to see this shambolic five-piece, which specializes in a sort of deconstructive garage-folk that sounds like Hasil Adkins gone pop or the Black Lips with a tambourine fixation. Either or all ways, it makes for a fine, freewheeling live show. Co-headliners the See recall power trios of yore, before, as I think I've said previously, indie rock got all weepy. The band recently put out a fine EP, “Bars of Gold,” and already has a number of new tunes. Look out, in particular, for one the band does with the dudes from Frown Pow'r offering an assist with harmonies. It's epic. Opener Winston Family Orchestra blends Girl Group harmonies with punk urgency.

  • Janet Jackson at Verizon Arena: A Review

    Her dance abilities had clearly diminished, as they naturally would over two decades. I mean, she's 50. And has a newborn. I get it, but it's like they're grasping at recreating 20 year-old Janet instead of focusing on what makes 50 year-old Janet amazing, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t terribly disappointed.
