There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.

AUGUST 25

Remember Pavement before the new drummer outfitted the band with concrete boots? Chapel Hill’s Archers of Loaf clearly do. Even as industry-obsessed songs like “Greatest of All Time” suggest an overdependence on the ironists of Stockton, the friskiest tunes on the Archers’ Vee Vee leave Wowee Zowee in the ’70s-revival dust. With Vitreous Humor at 10 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 930 F St. NW. $7. (202) 393-0930. (Mark Jenkins)
