AM Interstate is a country-rock band from Redmond, Ore., whose psychedelia-tinged music is as wide-open as the eastern Oregon landscape they hail from. With Past Impending, City Bear. Comet Tavern. 9 p.m.
Wednesday, March 13

Efterklang Quick: Name a band who's signed to 4AD, has a husky-voiced lead singer, and plays dour chamber rock. Superficial similarities to The National aside (they don't actually sound much like them), this Danish group, touring behind last year's icy Piramida, is plenty compelling in its own right. With Nightlands, Jherek Bischoff. Neumos. 8 p.m. $12 adv.
Saturday, March 16
Hobosexual Ben Harwood and Jeff Silva comprise one of Seattle's best-named rock acts, and they also put on a ferocious live show. With Black Wolf Men's Club, Dirty Church Ladies. Blue Moon. 9:30 p.m. $6.
