Tennis

The story behind Cape Dory, last year's debut album by Denver indie rockers Tennis, is a cute one: The husband-and-wife duo of Aliana Moore (she sings) and Patrick Riley (he plays guitar) sold all of their stuff, bought an old sailboat, fixed it, and then spent seven months sailing the eastern seaboard. After they got back on land, Moore and Riley wrote about their watery adventures, tied it into their relationship, and recorded an album that was one of the most buzzed of 2011's first quarter. A year later the band – now joined by drummer James Barone – set sail for Nashville, where they hooked up with the Black Keys' Patrick Carney, who produced their just-released second album, Young & Old. And for a guy whose thing is stripped-down, primitive-sounding blues rock, Carney applies a full polish to Young & Old's 10 songs, reaching Spectorian heights at times. Moore plays along, adapting a 1960s girl-group croon on songs like “Origins” and “Traveling.” She even gets all moody on “My Better Self,” slipping between handclaps and keys like they're salvation from an inner storm. Hopefully the trio, without Carney, will be able to pull off this semi-wall of sound onstage. With Lowly, the Tree Ghost and the Rails. 10 p.m. Tickets: $12, $10. – Michael Gallucci
