JEFF THE BROTHERHOOD
9 p.m. Juanita's. $12.

Jeff the Brotherhood is Jake and Jamin Orrall, two brothers out of Nashville who have been around for about a decade, but have getting lots of media attention since rocking SXSW a couple of years back.

This tour is to promote their sixth album and first release for Warner Bros., "Hypnotic Nights." On the opening track, "Country Life," they sing about drinking, swimming in the creek and smoking meat, which means they'll probably feel right at home here.

They're the sons of country-pop singer, songwriter and producer Robert Ellis Orral. With their muscle shirts, lanky frames, shaggy hair and all-around scruffiness, these guys have a look that recalls Drag City, circa 1992. But their album is largely radio friendly pop. It's catchy and upbeat, with "ooh-oohs" aplenty, more Weezer than Royal Trux.

If we're lucky, they'll toss a few of their earlier songs into the mix. That stuff has more feedback, more noise and more punk appeal.
