Jason Pollock (former guitarist for grunge hitmakers Seven Mary Three) and his eponymous band of Albemarle-area musicians, carve out songs that sound like Tom Petty got his chocolate in The Smithereens’ peanut butter—resulting in familiar, flavorful tunes. The Pollocks roll out a new album, Life Of The Stars, and it crackles with the energy of musicians who are long on chops playing live in a home studio.

Saturday, 10/13 No cover, 6:30pm. Plank Road Exchange, 6624 Plank Rd., Batesville. 823-2001.
