Alta Violet, Advance Cassette, More Eaze
In June, Austin’s Alta Violet released a pristine psych-pop EP heavily indebted to Revolver-era Fab Four. Plain View, the debut EP from local alt-rockers Advance Cassette, is full of feedback and fuzz, ferocity and feeling. Every time you think you’re ready to declare that the band sounds like some bygone alt-rock outfit, you find yourself surprised by an unfamiliar nuance. San Anto native Marcus Rubio (gigging now as More Eaze in thanks to presidential hopeful and homophone Marco Rubio) is drawn out in a fruitful battle between pop and experimental music, weighing his options like a dating show contestant choosing between the hot one and the reflective one with glasses. $5, 9pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary's St.
