San Francisco-based Jake Mann and the Upper Hand’s new full-length, Parallel South, drops on Davisite Michael Leahy’s Crossbill Records this month. And to celebrate, this upcoming Thursday’s Delta of Venus gig is a freebie. That means no cover to enjoy Jake Mann, Aaron Bellamy and Dan Baber’s power-pop and rock styling, with the possibility of some guest appearances, too. Mann and the Upper Hand’s new track, “Days Are Long,” which you can hear for free on the band’s Bandcamp page, is a big, uptempo party rocker with a catchy chorus, so expect a sweaty, bouncy night on Venus. 122 B Street in Davis, www.jakemann.org.
