Feart, The Shut Ups, Secret Europeans

Those only familiar with local musician Mandy Branch through her work with hard-hitting rockers Motherfucker will no doubt be taken aback by Secret Europeans, her new, stripped-down, piano-based project. According to Branch, Secret Europeans arose as a way to cope with the death of her father last year, and both music and lyrics have an appropriately elegiac quality. But beauty and hope also nestle in tender, mournful tunes like “Go About Your Business,” the first released single from Secret Europeans’ upcoming debut album, Love Don’t Stop. The record, out soon on Two Sheds Music, reportedly features contributions from scene fixtures Matt Hudgins, Gene Woolfolk, SJ Ursrey and many others.

9 p.m. $5 (21+), $7 (18–20).
