Pezzettino and Quinn Scharber and the…, 9 p.m. @ Stonefly Brewery (735 E. Center Street)
Since tot-dom, Milwaukeean Margaret Stutt, aka ‘Pezzettino’ has had her hands poised over a keyboard, whether of a piano or an accordion. These days, she’s more prone towards the polka-ish percussive instrument, but takes the folk ‘bellower’ down an entirely different avenue, using the best pop leanings to create a unique sound that belies a creative musician equipped with a firm grip on a new take of an old Wisconsin standby. Expect something along the lines of Kimya Dawson crossed with ELO crossed with El Perro Del Mar and Camera Obscura

Echoing the vim of Touch and Go and Dischord Records catalog, Milwaukee’s Year Of The Scavenger launches its first release with enough natural force to keep its audience stunned enough to stay put and listen to the rock music that is the rare output of a band, three-strong.

“Brutal” is a good descriptor to use for Kentucky’s Young Widows, who have built a musical career on sounding like an audio concussion. For fans of the Jesus Lizard, Bald Eagle and These Arms Are Snakes.
