Saturday To-Do: Mildriot

MILDRIOT
9 p.m., Town Pump. $3.


When we last saw Michael Chavez, he was playing last year's Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase under the name Miles Rattz.

Since then, he's changed his name to Mildriot and finished an album, "Fought Songs," which is due for release in February via Sister 9 Recordings, which is apparently somewhere in the UK (their website hypes him as their "first US-based artist").

The songs are endearingly unpolished and dizzy and simple — home recordings that seem rooted in the hushed and insular late '90s and early-aughts indie rock of bands like Grandaddy and the Unicorns.

  • 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.
