Wed., May 22, Atlas Genius
Harlow's Restaurant & Nightclub, 7 p.m., $13
Australian group Atlas Genius is rolling into Sacramento at just the right time: Summer is nearing, itching for some careless decision-making. If you somehow escaped hearing the single “Trojans” last year, Atlas Genius sounds like a less-Euro version of Phoenix; loosen up and dance a little more, and you'll forget that A.G. is also evocative of Coldplay and Neon Trees. The band plays dancey pop rock so evocative of warm weather that catching the act in winter would be like drinking a margarita in London on Christmas. See these Aussies while the timing is right and you're in a state of mind to be talked into one more drink on a Wednesday night. 2708 J Street, www.atlasgenius.com.
