Jail Weddings, Thanks, Woodwinds, No Good Lovers 

When: Sat., Aug. 24, 9 p.m. 2013
Jail Weddings' music has a grandiose, theatrical feel—part Little Shop of Horrors, part Hedwig and the Angry Inch, sprinkled with vocals that conjure up a young Bruce Springsteen. Their new record, Meltdown: A Declaration of Unpopular Emotion (out August 27), is an explosion of dramatic tension—if this music were a television show, it would be a soap opera. High-energy vocals and back-up harmonies are accompanied by eruptive brass, strings, and keys to build songs that are aggressive, intense, and impossible to disengage with. They're joined by local band Thanks, who have been holed up recording their new record, and their punchy, sexy soul-rock will round out the evening perfectly. RACHEL MILBAUER
