If you're looking to spice up your plans for Valentine's Day, Tala Vera offers a line-up of three groups that are bound to wow your music-loving boo. The Results (pictured) rock the continuum between typical band and super-awesome guitar-bass-drums combo. The quintet's grooves are subtle while its tempos are energetic and the guitar solos blistering. The Results jump around and cite Jack White and Jet as influences. I hear that and some Meat Puppets, too. Grunge kings Anchorage Nebraska sure feel like one of the hardest-working bands on the local scene. Neither snow nor sleet nor rain keeps Anchorage Nebraska from the swift completion of its appointed gig. This Valentine's Day show also features a set of solo acoustic serenades from members of both groups. With folk-punk singer-songwriter Cory Kesselring.
It all goes down Thursday, February 14, 8 p.m. at Tala Vera, 155 State St. Free. tala-vera.com.
