CADILLAC SKY
9 p.m., Juanita's. $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.

Sensitive woolyboogers, this group. Cadillac Sky is all beards, Rascal Flatts harmonies and bluegrass soundscapes, with a healthy dollop of mom-approved ganache. With its third album, the new “Letters in the Deep” (produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach), the band's elbowing for space in an already crowded room that's hogged up by the massively gifted Nickel Creek. Like its competition, Cadillac Sky enjoys taking a stab or two at covering other bands. Take their cover of Death Cab For Cutie's “I Will Follow You Into the Dark.” If Gibbard and Co.'s original wasn't treacly enough for you, Cadillac Sky made sure to slap an extra layer of jaw-jutting, brow-folding earnestness on top. Now, this isn't to say they're without serious chops. It's just that they bring serious seriousness, too.
