Unwed Sailor 

Unwed Sailor is a fitting name for a band that's geographically restless enough to have called Seattle, Chicago, Washington D.C., Mississippi and Little Rock, Arkansas, home in the past. Currently located in Lawrence, Kansas — and buoyed by the recent release a new album, Little Wars — these promiscuous seamen have spent ten years perfecting the clean guitar work and reverb-soaked drumming that defines its instrumental indie rock. Unwed Sailor avoids the common mistakes of its wordless brethren, however, by not relying too heavily on technicality or ambience; instead, the dramatics of Explosions in the Sky combine with the shimmer (and manageable track lengths) of the Appleseed Cast.

9 p.m. Sunday, April 13. The Bluebird, 2706 Olive Street. $7 over 21, $10 under 21. No phone.
