Weisshund, Thayer Sarrano, Franny

Atlanta duo Weisshund celebrates the release of its debut self-titled EP with a show at the Caledonia Lounge. The group, composed of singer and guitarist Rick Lollar and percussionist Marlon Patton (the latter is known for his sublime rhythmic work with Athens-based jazz ensemble Kenosha Kid) plays a dense but unshowy brand of blues-rock that nods to the members’ technical prowess but never hinges on it. Dollar’s songwriting chops are evident on tracks like early single “Save Your Love (For the Living).” While the world awaits a new LP from Southern-psych queen Thayer Sarrano, she continues to wow in the live setting. New Athens band Franny opens Wednesday’s show.

9 p.m. $5 (21+), $7 (18–20).
