While not Southern in the same sense as, say, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kansas-based Paw‘s debut, Dragline, still showcases a palpable redneck sentiment, with sprigs of country thrown into this particular postpunk mix. Vocalist MarkHennessy’s throaty barks (plus CD- sleeve illustrations of pigs and cows) add to the good ol’ boy effect, so expect a show where requests for “Freebird” might actually be taken seriously. Eve’s Plum opens at 9:30 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 930 F St. NW. $5. (202) 393-0930. (Stephen Kuhn)
