As a member of both Nice and Ashtray Boy, Australian Randall Lee writes and performs well-mannered pop that Go-Betweens fans are likely to embrace. In Nice, Lee is aided in the songwriting and vocal departments by Aussie soap opera actress Susannah Stuart-Lindsey, while in Ashtray Boy he handles most of the singing and writing alone. Opening is Cincinnati’s Lazy, which on Some Assembly Required mixes and matches male and female vocals, new wave, garage rock, and alternapop with uneven results. At 8:30 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1831 14th St. NW. $5. (202) 667-7960. (Steve Kiviat)
