Caveman advances a calm, reverb-y, rock agenda that calls to mind an overcast day at the beach. The Brooklyn band adds synths and kinky percussion to the equation, though, which feels very of-the-now. (Listen here.) Lockett Pundt, guitarist of the acclaimed dream-rock act Deerhunter, recently released his second solo album, Spooky Action at a Distance. Pundt wrote "Desire Lines," the best song on Deerhunter's most recent album, Halcyon Digest, and the smart, sprawling guitar-pop on Spooky Action confirms that he's really starting to hit his stride as a songwriter.

Tonight's Kansas City debut of the free event is also a debut of sorts for MiniBar, a new venture from the owners of RecordBar. The whole thing kicks off at 7 p.m. MiniBar is located at 3810 Broadway, in the old Gusto Lounge space. If the Lawrence events are any indication, you'll want to get there early, as seats go fast, and you don't want to miss such topics as "Broccoli and Other Fractals," "Info Nation" and "My Life As a Sex Writer; or, Why Carrie Bradshaw Is Not a Feminist."
It's cold. Like, really cold. And how does one beat the cold? Chili, spiked apple cider and jazz, of course.
Tonight at Clyde Manor apartments (350 East Armour Blvd.), people can enjoy all of the above. In hopes to bring in new residents and entertain current inhabitants, the Manor will host an evening of jazz, courtesy of Hermon Mehari and friends. In addition, attendees can enjoy building tours, a raffle and seasonal treats.
