Saturn Bar, 3067 St. Claude Ave., 949-7532
Lead Strange Boy Ryan Sambol doesn't sing his songs, exactly — he wheezes, squeals and pants his way through them, giving singular voice to the Austin sextet's bowlegged, soul-based rock 'n' roll. Be Brave (In the Red), the band's February sophomore effort, is both sound advice and self-directive. Gentleman Jesse opens. Call for ticket information.
