Minnesota-based Now, Now has come to kick back in our comparatively balmy climes. It will be a brief break from hanging with Minus the Bear on the Waves Overhead Spring Tour, with the band sharing some of its particularly cheery blend of pop and shoegaze, sung by co-vocalists Cacie Dalager and Jess Abbott. The topic matter in male hands would get creeper-tastic (especially "Dead Oaks" off the newest release, "Threads"). The evening will also feature a couple of local acts, including the indie folk of The Branch Davidians and some down-tempo instrumental electro noodlings from Precious Kindred. Show up early and stay late for Cultr Club at 11 p.m.
The show goes down Thursday, February 28, 8:30 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $10-$12. 454-2966, bugjar.com.
