Crushed Out, Desert Noises, Summer Cannibals 

When: Thu., Jan. 31, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $6-8
Desert Noises come from the Utah Valley, and their sound reflects the sheer gorgeousness of that region's topography, using jangling guitars and Beach Boys harmonies to depict all those snowy mountaintops and silver clouds and green forest floors. 2011's Mountain Sea is a solid full-length, showcasing the band's musical pliancy and expert vocal work. Their new EP, I Won't See You, is even better, offering lush, frayed pop that works well on both small and grand scales. Recorded in part in Portland with Graeme Gibson, I Won't See You finds the band fully out of the shadows of Fleet Foxes and tackling territory of their own. Tonight they join New York's Crushed Out, the drums-and-guitar duo whose Want to Give album from last year was bluesy, bruised garage fun. NED LANNAMANN
