It is a testament to the label’s post-grunge diversification that the phrase “Sub Pop band” no longer has much utility as an adjective. The Human Touch Tour brings together the modernist blues skronk of Six Finger Satellite, the Wire-d new wave punk of The Hardship Post and Zumpano‘s Bee Gees- and Walker Brothers-inspired ’60s pop classicism. At 8 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 930 F St. NW. $5. (202) 393-0930. (Christopher Porter)
