When Carol Noonan sings “I will love you,” it’s a lock that the time-frame is “till the end,” but this non-Nashville country-rocker and her band can make such routine sentiments percolate, if not resonate. There are no twists on the new Noonan Building & Wrecking, but the septet does quite well by the straight-ahead. Noonan opens for the Austin Lounge Lizards at 8 p.m. at the Birchmere, 3901 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria. $15. (703) 549-5919. (Mark Jenkins)
