Tonight @ the Cactus Club - 10 p.m.
Page France’s delicate folk-pop often sounded like it had been pulled directly from a Wes Anderson film, and as such, it was an instant hit in the blogosophere, where appetites for pristine indie-pop are large. Before they could find greater success, the pensive band broke-up—or went on an extended leave, depending on the source—but frontman Michael Nau is vying for similar buzz with his latest project, The Cotton Jones Basket Ride, which puts a more turbulent spin on Page France’s peaceful twee. The group does a 10 p.m. show at the Cactus Club tonight.
