Hey, I work for a living, and as such, won’t be updating this blog over lunch today. Instead, here’s a head’s up about tonight’s Pack A.D. show going on at Slowdown Jr. The guitar-and-drum duo are touted as “garage” when their recordings are cleaner and more controlled than your typical garage combo. Compare them to, say, Yeah Yeah Yeahs or a riff-heavy Breeders. Check out the video and judge for yourself. From Vancouver. On Nettwerk Records. The mighty Millions of Boys open the show. Definitely worth your $10. Starts at 9.

The usual Wednesday night singer/writer nights are happening tonight also. Artist of the Year Matt Whipkey has moved his solo showcase to The Harney Street Tavern, 1215 Harney Street downtown. Joining him is Songwriter of the Year John Klemmensen. Starts at 9 and no word on the door, though historically Whipkey Wednesdays have been free.

Meanwhile, Scott Severin makes a trip from Lincoln tonight to take part in MarQ Manner’s Library Pub Acoustic night. Joining him is Tracy Skretta. 8 p.m. and free.
