Scrams!

Pile onto the Marble Brewery patio (First Street and Marble NW, 21+) for garage punk supreme by The Scrams. 8 p.m. and free, but bring cash for the band’s brand-new, rumpus-ready 7-inch. (Laura Marrich)

Sonic Reducer

Arctic Monkeys Humbug · Felix da Housecat He Was King

British pseudo-punk quartet Arctic Monkeys established a sound with its first album and solidified that sound with a second. Now begins the tricky business of gradual modification. The chunky, line-drive curvature of the Monkeys' first two releases is replaced with a roomy echo chamber. The band is less concerned with racing through verses to get to hooks and more worried about atmospherics and reverb. Besides "Crying Lightening," it's hard to pick out an especially apt radio hit. But a change had to come, and this one's for the better.
