Lonely Horse (Nick Long in guitar/vocals, Travis Hild on drums) is the type of band you just don’t forget after you see it for the first time. What started as a six-piece in 2009 gradually became what it is now: a two-piece more interested in eclectic songs than just groove alone. They go from fierce soulful/bluesy riffs to mellow artsy folk, and their My Desert Son EP is a teaser of an upcoming full-length. But you only get the full LH experience live, so don’t miss this one. In case that was not enough, the show will also feature the Offbeats (one of the top five local bands on my list), Islands & Tigers, and Dark Planes. Another solid lineup in the “new” venue formerly known as Limelight. $3-$5; 9pm Fri, Jan 25; War Room, 2718 N St Mary’s, (210) 735-7775, warroomsa.com.
