Now, Now

8:30 p.m. Wednesday, November 30. Cicero's, 6691 Delmar Boulevard, University City.

Minneapolis' Now, Now honed its songcraft in the company of Afternoon Records, home of the Twin Cities' finest (One for the Team, Haley Bonar), national wave-makers (Poison Control Center, Pomegranates) and select St. Louisans (Target Market and, as of last week, Volcanoes). Lately the band draws a different crowd, touring with Paramore, Hello Goodbye and Never Shout Never. Unlike those headliners, Now, Now's power pop is reluctant, distancing itself with standoffish textures and Cacie Dalager's detached melodies — think Stars' Amy Millan fronting Transatlanticism-era Death Cab. No wonder pop-punks love the band; folks always want the loner, and Now, Now plays hard to get.

Check ID Before: Purchasing a drink for someone else, loaning a cigarette, giving or accepting a phone number.
