Purveying a sound as distinctive and retro as a 1958 Plymouth Fury, Jumpin’ Jupiter operates from a home base in Northern Virginia, that stronghold of Teen Beaters and Simple Machinists. This band’s stripped-down rockabilly assault is loud and strong, with guitar licks straight out of a hot-rod movie. You won’t need cigarettes rolled in your T-shirt sleeve or a pint of pomade in your ‘do to enjoy this raucous sideshow. At 8:30 p.m. at the Sunset Grille, 7250 Columbia Pike, Annandale. $2. (703) 658-0928. (Ben Buja)
