Tim Darcy, Ought’s slim, aquiline lyricist, has an enviable ability — seen in David Byrne and Prince before him — to take daily language and graft it seamlessly onto his art. On the title cut from the Montreal punks’ wiry debut More Than Any Other Day, Darcy celebrates the simple contact between strangers and “the decision between two percent and whole milk,” reveling in the small victories of the ordinary. Katie Greer, of D.C.’s excellent Priests, is an earworm punk lyricist herself. On “Doctor,” Greer calls out an intrusive MD: “You put your fingers in other people’s mouths all day, don’t you doctor?” $8, 8pm Thu, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersa.com
