Margot & the Nuclear So & So's, Ezra Furman, Writer

When: Sat., April 14, 9 p.m. 2012

Once upon a time, this sex-/septet made the sort of quaint lyrical clamor that one would expect from a group that named itself after one of Wes Anderson's not-so-royal Tenenbaums. As the group moves further from their debut, however, the "chamber pop" label that once seemed tailor-made for them has had trouble sticking. There are still elements of that semi-baroque sound in 2010's Buzzard and this year's Rot Gut, Domestic, and it's not like Margot's so-and-sos make bad music. Still, it's hard to not be disappointed in a band's development when the only thing separating them from the rest of the radio-friendly indie rock pack is their exceptionally awkward name. —David Raposa

Price: $10-12
