World of Noise is the title of Everclear‘s major-label pickup album, and rock listeners have had more than a few guided tours of that world in the years since Isn’t Anything. Fortunately, this Portland trio packs some vocal melodies and guitar lyricism between its bouts of drowsy distortion. With Trusty and Nine Pound Hammer at 8:15 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 930 F St. NW. $5. (202) 393-0930. (MJ)
