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)
