There’s a pervasive sense of restlessness conveyed in the heavy motions of Samuel Edmonson’s bass and the wiry vocals of singer/guitarist Stefan Scott that lends Advance Cassette’s 2014 EP Plain View an air of tense immediacy unlike many bands can accomplish. On “One Eyed Neal,” the final track of Crown’s debut LP Are These the Good Days?, the trio sets up to ride out on some surf rock, but transition to a massive slow-burner to light fire to the album’s end. SA musical polyglot Marcus Rubio is just as comfortable rocking deconstructionist tape loop catastrophes as he is shredding through guitar and banjo pop. With bassist Josh Borchardt (Crown, Bright Like the Sun) drummer Kory Cook (The Boom, Dark Planes) and guitarist/vocalist Mark Anthony Smith (Creatura), Mockingbird Express’s improvisational chops will leave your jaw thoroughly dropped. $5, 9pm, The Ten Eleven, 1011 Avenue B, (210) 320-9080 — James Courtney, Matt Stieb
