The (now Philly-based) group Left & Right spent its formative years on the streets of Charlottesville, where all four members worked as city transit bus drivers and shared road stories after work. Those long days in the driver’s seat might explain the band’s affinity for the high energy, grunge addled tunes that it calls “working overtime” rock, a sound that’s paying off in the Mid-Atlantic region. Wishlist and The Hibernator Gigs Musical Revue open the show.

Thursday 1/8. $7, 8:30pm. Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar, 414 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 293-9947.
