How far can irony and pastiche take you? All the way to British acclaim and 4AD trendiness in the case of Unrest, whose transatlantic rep has made this arch Teenbeat trio one of the first local bands to have a WEA-distributed album since the halcyon days of the Urban Verbs and Root Boy Slim. With New York clamor-popsters Versus and up-and-coming Teenbeat act Blast Off Country Style. At 8:15 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 930 F St. NW. $5. (202) 393-0930. (MJ)
