The Ettes 

9 p.m. Saturday, January 31. Way Out Club, 2525 South Jefferson Boulevard.

Lindsay "Coco" Hames of LA-born garage-rock trio the Ettes knows how to get the Nancy Sinatra look — the eyeliner, the hair, the skirt — down cold, but these boots are made for singin', too. The vocalist/guitarist brings the same brassy-but-blasé kiss-off style to the best moments of the band's second album, Look at Life Again Soon. Moody, midtempo fuzz-tunes like "You Can't Do That to Me" and "Chilled Hidebound Hearts" beg for repeat plays. When they aim for fast punk rave-ups, the bandmates can handle themselves OK, but it's the simmering pop stuff that really allows the Ettes to come into its own. Could the Ettes be the missing link between garage-psych and country-politan? Lee Hazlewood may be dead — but Hames has been living in Nashville lately....
