The 7 Shot Screamers made the jump from good to great in the past few years by broadening the scope of rockabilly to include more than hollow-body guitar licks and walking bass lines. There's a wide swatch of hook-heavy bubblegum-inspired pop on the band's most recent full-length In Wonderland. Of course, the four-piece can still rip it up on stage: Magnetic frontman Mike Leahy croons sweetly and swaggers with confidence, and watching bassist Chris Powers Jr. alternately romance and punish his upright bass is worth the price of admission alone. (CS)

Its name evokes Charles Dickens' London, all urban desperation and devolution, and its sound suggests the heavier, meaner side of various British invasions, from Them to the Animals to Led Zeppelin. But the Scrubs are a classic American rock band, with singer and keyboardist Larissa Dalle moaning with country-blues soul and guitarist and singer Jason Rook peeling off psychedelic guitar solos. Though the band hasn't fully broken through to local (let alone national) audiences, it's toured successfully in Europe and the UK. It's time their homies caught up with them. (RK)
Pi, 7 p.m.
