Canadian noise-rockers Japandroids make quite a racket on their 2009 debut album, Post-Nothing, coming off like No Age with a sense of melody. You’d think the whole guitarist-and-drummer-make-really-loud-music thing would be played out by now, but these scruffy hipsters manage to wring a lot of intriguing sounds out of their instruments. Plus, they keep things thankfully brief, with Post-Nothing clocking in at a brisk 35 minutes. Best of all, Japandroids aren’t overly artsy, which makes them a bit more accessible than most of the other low-fi noisemakers out there. Plus, they don’t sound Canadian — another bonus. Japandroids play the Grog Shop (2785 Euclid Heights Blvd., 216.321.5588) at 9 p.m. Avi Buffalo, Jaguar Love and Two Hand Fools open. Tickets: $10. — Michael Gallucci
