Margot and the Nuclear So and So's

I'm enjoying the streamlined power-pop feel of "Buzzard", the latest offering from Margot and the Nuclear So and So's. If my staff pick piques your interest, head to Circus, 1227 N. High St., to catch them on the tail end of a solid slate including Pac NW popsters The Lonely Forest (sample song title: "Turn Off This Song and Go Outside") and Chicago's Cameron McGill and What Army? Doors open at 8 p.m., and tickets cost $12.

Also, as I frequently like to note, Columbus musical whiz Erik Kang is one of Margot's core members. Show the hometown boy some love, won't you?
