Deerhunter with Times New Viking 

9 p.m. Fri., Dec. 5

One Eyed Jacks, 615 Toulouse St., 569-8361; www.oneeyedjacks.net

The Atlanta-based quintet Deerhunter plays singsongy, ambient psychedelia inspired by genre classics like the Zombies' Odessey & Oracle and the Pretty Things' SF Sorrow — though beefed-up and roughed-up by fuzzy, muscled guitars and a thumping, propulsive garage-pop beat. It is joined by Matador Records artists Times New Viking, an arty, noisy, lo-fi band of shoegazers who wrap lovely psych-pop melodies in a nearly impenetrable blanket of woolly fuzz. Also on the bill is Nite Jewel, a one-woman band and multimedia artist from Los Angeles who layers multiple edits, solely on a portable eight-track cassette deck, to create hazy, ethereal pop dreamscapes with slow, sexy beats. The results are songs that sound more like a memory or a dream of dance music than dance music itself. Tickets $10. — Fensterstock
