Jukebox the Ghost, Speak, Elwins

When: Thu., March 22, 9 p.m. 2012

The jaunty, blithe piano pop of D.C. trio Jukebox The Ghost comes packing boundless energy and in the shape of eccentric and ambitious arrangements. With a nose for huge hooks, a touch of operatic grandeur and a host of endearing quirks, the instantly contagious results land where Queen, Ben Folds Five, They Might Be Giants and fun might meet. Both openers play similarly cheerful but more straightforward pop-rock: Austin quartet Speak takes the sugary sweet, synth-stuffed route, while bright-eyed Canadian foursome The Elwins bring summery jangles that straddle the line between twee and power.—Spencer Griffith
