Nearly forgot to hype tonight's Wavves show at Skully's, 1151 N. High St. Though I enjoyed seeing the pre-meltdown version of Wavves at last year's South by Southwest, I thought Nathan Williams' lo-fi recordings were somewhat forgettable. The sleek sounds of "King of the Beach", on the other hand, have had me coming back again and again, so I imagine his gig with Christmas Island and Feature Films will be hot stuff. Some folks' melodies just sound better in gorgeous hi-fi.

Check my preview for more extensive thoughts, then show up a little after 8 p.m. with your $12 in hand.
