King Khan & BBQ Show Where: Off Broadway Playing With: Those Darlins, Jesse Irwin Sounds Like: What Keegan Hamilton said here and here. RIYL: Chuck Berry, Black Flag, psych-rock/garage-soul MP3: King Khan & BBQ Show, "Third Ave."

Holiday Shores Where: The Firebird Playing With: Evangelicals, The Vanilla Beans, Brad Fox and the Usual Suspects Sounds Like: Rain-streaked-windows indie-rock with hints of '60s psych-pop, swinging London soul and wool-sweater reverb. RIYL: The Walkmen, early Death Cab for Cutie, Grizzly Bear MP3: Holiday Shores, "Phones Don't Feud"

Failures' Union / Cheap Girls Where: Mangia Sounds Like: Both bands channel jangly, fuzzy college-rock from the '80s, a time when enthusiasm and purity counted more than blog buzz or hype.
