NADA SURF
8 p.m., Juanita's. $13-$15.

Brooklyn's Nada Surf spent the first half of the aughts making moody pop records about restlessness and lost love. With “Lucky” (released earlier this February), the band's first album in three years, the band hasn't quite shaken the forlorn (“Everyone's gotta leave their love sometime / If not now, then at the end of your lifetime” goes a line in the album's closer, “The Film Did Not Go Round”), but they've paired it with arrangements that often build from contemplative to buoyant. Lead singer Matthew Caws milks an impressive amount of emotion from his fairly thin voice, and few three-pieces can manage such a big pop sound. From California, Delta Spirit melds jaunty throwback rock with blue-eyed soul in one opening slot, while dreamy, Brooklyn-based indie rockers Jealous Girlfriends fill the other. The show's open to ages 18 and above.
