Sunrise & Ammunition
Fitzgerald's, December 19

Sunrise & Ammunition's new album Tesseract is one of the most amplified local albums of 2012. The trio, a self-described "mutation in the suburban gene pool," benefits from production and mixing by NY-based producer Jesse Cannon (Menzingers, Man Overboard), who streamlines the harsher elements of S&A's last two EPs into something less scatter-brained - ten-minute workout "The Apotheosis" notwithstanding.

Better Than Ezra
House of Blues, December 20

New Orleans trio Better Than Ezra is one of the few '90s alt-rock bands to have stuck around through music-industry ups and downs, coming out the other end as a group of independent artists in charge of its own career path. It's paid off in spades, because the band is met at every tour stop with a cadre of devoted BTE fans and soon-to-be converts. Nearly 25 years into their history, Better Than Ezra shows no signs of slowing down. Watch for a BTE interview a little later this week. CRAIG HLAVATY
