Formed in the San Fernando Valley last year by three friends (including Queens of the Stone Age bass player Michael Shuman), Mini Mansions is part progressive, part psychedelic, part gothic, part cinematic. The trio—comprised of a cocktail drum kit, piano and bass—creates spacious tracks bathed in enough pop melody to make them eerily danceable. The band performs at The Underground—located beneath Evangelo's Cocktail Lounge (200 W. San Francisco)—in Santa Fe tonight. The show starts at 8 p.m. and admission is $5.
