Andrew Jackson Jihad 

When: Wed., March 25, 7:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $17
There’s nothing new about combining the musical aesthetics of punk and folk rock, but it’s always a pleasure when a band gets it right. Andrew Jackson Jihad, also riding threads of nostalgia throughout their output, blends fuzzy bass lines with almost Mountain Goats-style songwriting. (Is there some latter-day Matt and Kim in there too?) Last year’s showcases the band’s sense of variety in all its overt glory, with album opener “Temple Grandin” urging listeners to “Find a nicer way to kill it.” Later, on “I Want to Rock Out in My Dreams,” singer Sean Bonnette covers the gamut of youthful anxiety. Throughout, Ben Gallaty’s upright bass work blends into the songwriting perfectly. (Sandy)
