International Pop Overthrow: The Zags, Don't, 302, The Lonesomes, Anny Celsi, Christopher Reyne 

When: Wed., Aug. 14, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: $5-8
Local power-pop up-and-comers the Zags have only been around since the beginning of the summer, but their lone recording, the can't-believe-it's-not-Squeeze "It's Over," has already earned them a considerable amount of buzz among this city's pop litterateurs. While it's difficult to write extensively about a band with such a limited output, it's easy to see the Zags' star-spangled trajectory: clocking in at just over two minutes (if you need any longer than that to make your point in the realm of pop music, you're doing it wrong), "It's Over" is a crash course in Beatlesque pop done right in the 21st century. The Zags fittingly headline the first show of the annual International Pop Overthrow festival tonight. MORGAN TROPER
