Ravens and Chimes’ Reichenbach Falls sounds more like an Arcade Fire album than the band might care to admit. But that hasn’t hurt the flute- and glockenspiel-wielding five-piece, given the amount of attention it’s received during its year-or-so-long existence. For band leader Asher Lack, who found himself with the kind of free time and poverty only unemployment and a screenwriting degree can afford a person, the accolades probably couldn’t have come soon enough: Just a few months can mean the difference between being a hypereducated layabout and a musical wunderkind. Like any good whimsical wintry pop record, Reichenbach Falls is steeped in literary ­references—in particular, more contemporary offerings such as Donna Tart’s The Secret History, a tale of criminally reckless classics students. Because God forbid an arts degree should go to waste. Ravens and Chimes performs with Pash and Ben Britten at 9:30 p.m. at the Red and the Black, 1212 H St. NE. $8. (202) 399-3201.
