A direct descendent of alt-rock gods Dinosaur Jr., the Pixies and Pavement, Doug Martsch's grandfatherly Built to Spill is now the one being name-checked in reference to upstart pups with quavering vocals, twisting guitars and universal, space-needling songs that meander but never waver. Seventh album There Is No Enemy (Warner Bros.) is not Perfect From Now On, but not much is. Revolt Revolt opens. 10 p.m. Wed. Howlin' Wolf, 907 S. Peters St., 522-9653. www.howlin-wolf.com. Tickets $20.
