JETS TO BRAZIL — Jets don't roar anything like singer/songwriter Blake Schawarzenbach's first band, the punk-pop-grunge Jawbreaker, opting instead for an unusual and oddly affecting low-key mix of Cracker and late-period Beatles. While the introspective piano-based ballads threaten a move into smarmy Lennon/Elton territory, their new album floats on subtly oblique melodies and casually emotional vocals that definitely grow on you. Echo Lounge (Horowitz)

THE LIMIT — Solid and honest if occasionally lacking in sophistication, the Limit performs wide-open rock, borrowing a few compositional clues from the free-spirited energy of Pearl Jam's Ten period. While vocalist Mark Daniel often pulls out the Vedder-esque long, dramatic baritone, this sonically-thick trio stamps their compositions with a sense of individuality. Somber Reptile (Hutchinson)

MICKLE-A-DO — It's Celtic Tuesday at the Attic tonight, featuring local emerald ensemble Mickle-A-Do playing jigs, pub anthems and a mixture of rollicking traditional and contemporary tunes. Following their set will be a Celtic Music Session, open to the audience. Eddie's Attic (Smith)
