The Henry Clay People, Silversun Pickups, Against Me!

I like the Silversun Pickups just fine, but I have a sneaking suspicion that’s mostly because of the massive multi-tracked guitar parts that remind me of an era when Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan hadn’t lost his mind (or touch for writing catchy rock anthems). And Against Me! has a way with making political angst entertaining, which is difficult in these jaded times we live in. But the reason I’m going to this show is The Henry Clay People, an L.A. crew led by brothers enamored with Pavement, Built to Spill and Guided By Voices, but just as influenced by the shimmery classic Cali-rock of their dad’s record collection: The Byrds, Fleetwood Mac and Jackson Browne, who The Henry Clay People covered earlier this year at their gig opening for Drive-By Truckers. The band’s new album, Somewhere on the Golden Coast, is a fine guitar-rock antidote to all the sensitive beardy-folk out there. The Rail, 235 N. 500 West, 7 p.m., $26
