Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Carbon Tigers/Jamie Lono & Noble Heart/Across the Viaduct/Sunnyvale (in the Locker Room)

When: Sun., Oct. 5, 7 p.m. 2014

Chicago natives Carbon Tigers have softened up their sound these days. Their latest, The Wars at Home EP, has traded much of its rock elements for a pared down, more harmonic feel. Tracks like “Everybody Else” and “Queen” feature Chris Wienke’s boyish crooning over subdued guitar and an ethereal noise-pedal background, structured by simple percussion. “Ishmael” and “The Harvest” harken back to days of heavier guitar and rougher vocals, but these Windy City boys still wear their hearts on their sleeves with lyrics exploring intimacy, saying goodbye and unrequited love. 7 p.m., $8 ADV, $10 DOS. Mahall’s 20 Lanes. (Liz Trenholme)

Price: $8 ADV, $10 DOS
