Local Motion: Wydown

8 p.m. Friday, July 7. Mississippi Nights (914 North First Street)

College students, take heed: Wydown is the perfect house band for your campuses during the next school year. Worldy without being weary, quirky without being cutesy, the quartet would make the Lou proud as an opener for Guster or Death Cab for Cutie. In fact, elements of both bands are clearly evident on Wydown's new CD, Noise of America — namely in the form of sad piano; earnest, wounded vocals; and midtempo riffs. At their recent Pageant gig, the bandmates' crisp dress shirts matched their professionalism, although shades of Ben Folds' playful melancholy ruled the night.
