Did you know that Seattle indie band Pickwick is playing tonight at Slowdown Jr.? Me neither. The band’s latest, Can’t Talk Medicine (Dine Alone Music) is a slick production for a band known for its DIY ethos. Put them in the same category as Black Keys, circa about five years ago. Very retro blues. Judge for yourself. Check out some Pickwick online here:

Opening is Omaha wunderkind Millions of Boys. $10, 9 p.m.

What else is happening this week?

Maps & Atlases return to Omaha Thursday night, this time to The Waiting Room. Opening is St. Paul band Young Man (Frenchkiss Records). $10 Adv/$12 DOS, 9 p.m. Check out some Young Man, below:

That same night (Thursday) Gordon plays at O’Leaver’s with D.C. band Paperhaus. $5, 9:30 p.m. Here’s some Paperhaus for your listening pleasure:

Hmmm…. I’m beginning to think Thursday is the new Friday.
