Local Motion: Troubador Dali 

9 p.m. Tuesday, January 16. Cicero's (6691 Delmar Boulevard, University City).

A clever name will only take a band so far; after all, if wit isn't backed up by stellar tunes, no amount of humor can save the group from mediocrity. Thankfully local quartet Troubadour Dali (oh, the name still makes us giggle) backs up its Salvador Dalí-honoring moniker with some equally surrealistic music. Demos found on MySpace (myspace .com/troubadourdali) and a woozy, laissez-faire live show reveals a group well-versed in the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club/Brian Jonestown Massacre/Spiritualized school of reverb-'n'-feedback, with a healthy dose of Dandy Warhols drone thrown in for good measure. Dali's currently recording an EP with LaPush's Thom Donovan — which should be a match made in shoegazer heaven.
