With members of Fugazi, Yo La Tengo, Trenchmouth, and Red Red Meat (as well as Low) on board, Lois’ new Snapshot Radio could have been plenty noisy. But this five-song appetizer for the Olympia, Washington/Washington, D.C., punk-folkie’s upcoming album, Infinity Plus (with which it shares a song), is cool and sauntering. Even when the guitar is clearly electric—and there is a brief explosion on “N.O. Style”—the ambience is lounge. Don’t expect Astrud Gilberto’s stage patter, though. With Godrays and Racecar at 8:30 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1830 14th St. NW. $6. (202) 667-7960. (MJ)
