Tonight in live music; Iska Dhaaf, Eisley, Brother Cephus & more

Such nice musics for a school night.

Iska Dhaaf w/Someday River Last month, bi-coastal indie-pop duo Iska Dhaaf played a rowdy set to open the mainstage at Seattle’s massive Bumbershoot Festival. Tonight, their fall tour takes them to the hyper-intimate quarters of Seminole Heights record shop Microgroove where the deep bass and propulsive rhythm on songs like “Invisible Cities” from their new album The Wanting Creature just might shake some vinyl off the wall. Orlando dream-pop boogie makers Someday River open this early show (7 p.m.) where a $5 donation for the band’s gas tank is being collected. (Microgroove, Tampa) INFO 

Eisley w/Merriment/Brother Cephus Eisley look a little different these days, and that might not be a bad thing. After the departure of two founding members, guitarist and singer Sherri DuPree-Bemis went ahead and stepped front and center. The Texas five-piece have a new LP due next year, but for now you'll have to settle for a pretty pop tune, "Defeatist," below. (Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO
