Tim Williams

Today, 12 p.m.

The Quad

Tim Williams has helped give a little bit of indie street cred to teen drama “One Tree Hill.” I can’t say much in favor for the show, but Williams’ music – solid indie acoustic – could be something to write home about. For any of you with class or any other prior engagements, fear not: he’ll also play at Sophia’s Thai Kitchen tonight.


Sigur Rós, Parachutes

Friday, 8 p.m., $42.50

Greek Theatre in Berkeley

For those unfamiliar with Icelandic band Sigur Rós, they make ethereal, ambient, slow-motion post-rock. What a mouthful – almost as difficult to the tongue as the band’s most recent release, Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust.


Sholi, Garrett Pierce, Buildings Breeding

Friday, 8 p.m.

Old Firehouse

This Bay Area band is truly on the rise: From their days at UC Davis (its members are UCD alumni!), Sholi will be joining Iron and Wine for select West Coast dates. I can expect many a request for “Hejrat.” Check out the article on page _ for an in-depth look at the band.


The West Nile Ramblers

Friday, 10 p.m., $3-5, 21

Sophia’s Thai Kitchen

Not only will it be a mix of country, swing and jazz, you can also expect a smorgasbord of local talent: The West Nile Ramblers are made up of member of other Davis/Woodland bands, like the Mad Cow String Band and the Bottom Dwellers.


Adam Donald, Bag of Toys

Friday, 10 p.m., $3-5, 21

The G St. Pub

Bringing an atypically breezy, beachy and Jack Johnson-esque vibe to G Street is San Francisco-based group Bag of Toys.


3 Leg Torso

Saturday, 7 p.m., $12

Village Homes Community Center

This ensemble – featuring a violinist, cellist and accordionist – provide a lively mix of modern chamber music and Eastern European music.

Jackson Hall in the Mondavi Center

KDVS Benefit Dance Party

Saturday, 8 p.m., $3

Delta of Venus

I’m already feeling the fever of fall quarter, and it’s only been one full week! The only prescription: more dance parties.


BoomSnake, Mark Geary, Katharina Ullman

Saturday, 10 p.m., $3-5, 21

Sophia’s Thai Kitchen

I would try to offer my own witty and insightful commentary on Portland-based outfit BoomSnake, but the CD review on page __ beat me to the punch!



Get Smart

Today at 7 p.m. in 194 Chemistry
