Fri 4/14

Longtime SA trio Buttercup are back with their first new album in eight years, Battle of Flowers. The 12-song record was mixed by Portland’s Larry Crane, who’s worked with artists like the late Elliott Smith, Death Cab for Cutie and Sleater Kinney, to name a few. Described as “jangly art-rock for the left side of the brain” by NPR, singer Erik Sanden, guitarist Joe Reyes and bassist Odie joined forces in 2003 and have been cranking out rich indie rock ever since. Joining Buttercup on drums for the release show is Apple In Stereo’s John Dufilho, whose band Clifffs is also set to play along with Austin’s Slomo Drags. With more than 15 years in the Texas live music circuit, Buttercup remain a staple of the burgeoning indie scene in Alamo City. $20-$30, 8:30pm Fri, Charline McCombs Empire Theatre, 226 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com. — Chris Conde
