Plants and Animals

Montreal indie rockers Plants and Animals have a lot in common with fellow Canadians Arcade Fire. They both make sweeping semi-pop songs adorned with sounds that don't go for the typical riff-rock crunch. They both favor moody buildups over smack-in-the-face obvious. And singer Warren Spicer sounds a little like Win Butler. One thing they don't have in common is their size. Unlike the more famous Grammy winners, who have like 27 people in their group, Plants and Animals make all their noise with just three guys. Their third album, The End of That, amps the guitars a little more this time – or maybe it just seems that way. They certainly sound more at ease turning up from time to time. They also seem more open to the idea of working within their songs rather than around them, so there's not too much empty space. That drive gives The End of That the oomph that makes Plants and Animals sound like they can be as big as Arcade Fire. Expect their songs to fill out the Beachland Tavern this week. With Nights and Bethesda. 8:30 p.m. Tickets: $10. –Michael Gallucci

2366 West 11th St., Cleveland 

This Tremont coffee joint feels like a blast from the past. With a wood-paneled interior, dim-lighting and wooden furniture, the space gives you the feeling of being in an Enlightenment-era French salon. Along with fine coffees, it offers a large selection of bakery and food options, including chocolate and croissants.
