PLAN A: Sleep Lady, T.S. Brooks, Immovable Objects, Roswell That Ends Well @ Soda Bar. Check out my feature on Sleep Lady, a local quintet whose cinematic instrumental rock compels me to write expletives in my notebook. PLAN B: Incan Abraham, In Motion Trio, The Mattson 2 @ Che Café. Moving from colorful soundscapes to Latin-esque grooves to hard-driving indie-rock, sometimes in the same song, L.A.’s Incan Abraham bring to mind all the usual influences (The Beatles, Animal Collective) in the most unusual ways. PLAN C: The Babies, The So So Glos, White Fence, Trap Gold @ Tin Can Ale House. The Babies don’t sound any better or worse than any of Vivian Girls’ several other side-projects, but fellow New Yorkers The So So Glos have an ear for a good pop-rock hook and the energy to make it stick.

ALSO: Convoy, Behind the Wagon, The Western Set @ The Casbah. Check out our feature on this page to learn all about Convoy, a great-yet-short-lived rock band that’s reuniting for a couple shows.
