Quite a few shows happening for a Tuesday night.

Peter Wolf Crier, Garden of Arms (Jagjaguwar, 2011)

Peter Wolf Crier, Garden of Arms (Jagjaguwar, 2011)

On top of the list (for me, anyway) is Peter Wolf Crier at The Waiting Room. I’ve been listening to the Minneapolis-based duo’s latest, Garden of Arms (Jagjaguwar, 2011), which has been compared to Radiohead’s Amnesiac. A better comparison would be to Now It’s Overhead’s last couple of albums, which the record almost mimics in composition, production, right down to Peter Pisano’s uncanny vocal resemblance to Andy LeMaster. That said, PWC isn’t NIO. PWC’s style is slightly more mainstream and less adventurous, though there’s plenty to explore here, especially considering that Now It’s Overhead isn’t very active these days (a pity). Opening is Twin Cities hip hop trio No Bird Sing. $10, 9 p.m. Check out the opening track to Garden of Arms, below:


Also tonight, Omaha’s Skypiper headlines a show at Slowdown Jr. with McAllen Texas band Dignan and up-and-comers Family Picnic. $7, 9 p.m.

Meanwhile, over at fabulous O’Leaver’s, it’s the long-awaited return of The Voodoo Organist. Headlining is Fools. Brad Hoshaw kicks things off at 9:30. $5.

Tomorrow: Maria Taylor talks babies. Don’t miss it.
