Miniature Tigers 

8 p.m. Tuesday, March 15. Old Rock House, 1200 South Seventh Street.

Having survived a mid-'00s barrage of blog-buzz hosannas and an estimable amount of MySpace clicks, Miniature Tigers deserves some kind of endurance prize for coming through smelling rosy. Charlie Brand's kaleidoscopic pop songs tend to suffer from borderline personality disorder, but he shows a Shins-like delicacy in unpacking life's miniscule moments of elation and confusion. Last year's Fortress wasn't exactly imposing or impregnable — the hazy jams and distorted campfire sing-alongs could hardly be more inviting. The band has been touring with a recently reconstituted Get Up Kids, but for this week's St. Louis show, the group will go it alone.
