When: Fri., Feb. 15, 9:30 p.m. 2008
The Moore Brothers, an unclassifiable duo known for their celestial harmonies and idiosyncratic lyrics that are open to a wide range of interpretation, recently relocated to Grass Valley from Oakland, where they were welcomed into a burgeoning roots music scene. They'll be back in town this week with NevadaCity neighbors Them Hills, a pop-punk trio that plays a melodic mix of styles from the '70s, '80s, and '90s, flavored by their love of 21st-century underground indie rock. The group recently finished work on its debut album, Greener Grassing. Oakland's Dreamdate, a garage punk band with a propulsive pop sound, rounds out the bill with its bright female harmonies and driving, happy-go-lucky songs that investigate the ups and downs of modern romance from a distinctly female perspective. Its first album, Come Over Now, is just out on San Francisco's Chocolate Covered Records. Cure your Valentine's Day love hangover with these three beguiling acts on Friday, Feb. 15 at the Knockout (3223 Mission St., San Francisco). 9:30 p.m., $5. TheKnockoutSF.com or 415-550-6994.
