ELISE DAVIS
10 p.m., Juanita's. $7.

It's a safe bet that this'll be a good one. Young local singer/songwriter Elise Davis plans to introduce new material and welcome into the fold new bandmates (including Grand Serenade's Jordan Trotter and Trevor Ware) who helped create it. This preliminary crop of yet-to-be-released tunes looks to put Davis on a new level. Expect deeper and more complex structures and songs with sharper teeth. Which is not to say that dreamy cruiserweights from Davis' repertoire, such as “Thinking of You” and “Sniffin',” with its deliciously syrupy drag, won't hold up well on their own. Better still, if a song about coming home after a grueling day and basically saying, “Bad day, sweetheart, nothing against you, but I'm not much for words right now, so kindly buzz off and let me go to sleep,” feels familiar, then “Do You Mind” is one to holler requests for. The 18-and-up triple bill kicks off with Matt Stell and the Crashers and Nevertrain.
