Delicate yet wiry, Seam‘s Are You Driving Me Crazy? (due next month) is as gentle, and sometimes downright lovely, an album as any ever released by Touch and Go. The Chicago (via North Carolina) quartet headlines a lineup of post-punkers that appear on Eye of the Dragon, a new compilation of bands that include Asian-American members. Versus, aMiniature, and Venus Cures All open at 9 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1831 14th St. NW. $7. (202) 667-7960. (MJ)
