Dare Dukes & the Blackstock Collection, Anna Rose Beck

When: Mon., Jan. 23, 8 p.m. 2012

Dare Dukes and his company inform their American roots with hints of clever college pop, like They Might Be Giants. The Savannah, Ga., native and his slightly nasal tenor have followed a circuitous route back into music after spending the late '80s in a Minneapolis band. As such, there are hints of Pixies-ish bristle, though Dukes mostly prefers full-bodied pop abetted by strings, occasional harmonies and a melodic warmth reminiscent of Bright Eyes. Dukes releases his second full-length, Thugs and China Dolls, this week, recorded with guests from Sufjan Stevens' band, TV on the Radio and Of Montreal. Anna Rose Beck opens. —Chris Parker
