Working that now-familiar girls-and-noise gambit, Lauren Fay wears an old-fashioned dress while the rest of the Swansons garb her pretty voice in newfangled noise; their album is called Shake, and on songs like “All These Things Will Happen,” it does. The New Haven quartet, which now features a former emmet swimming guitarist, plays with Xanax 25 and Popsloppy at 10 p.m. at 15 Minutes, 1030 15th St. NW. $6. (202) 408-1855. (Mark Jenkins)
