Back before Velocity Girl was the first pop band in Sub Pop history, VG’s Jim Spellman played in the High Back Chairs, the only pop band in Dischord history. The Chairs’ singer/songwriter was Peter Hayes, and tonight, Spellman and Tuscadero’s Phil Satlof back Hayes, whose latest songs are more rootsy but just as catchy as his Chairs tunes. Opening is the White, featuring Joyce Raskin of the short-lived but much-praised Scarce. At 9 p.m. at Iota, 2832 Wilson Blvd., Arlington. FREE. (703) 522-8340. (MJ)
