Turning the tables: What you see is what you get with the Winstons, a Brooklyn-based garage blues duo that is indie without pretense and relies on performances to get its point across. The former Charlottesville residents recently celebrated six years of live gigs and “turning down just about nothing” with a debut LP—giving a nod to simpler times by issuing the eponymously titled album exclusively on vinyl via WarHen Records.

Friday 5/31. No cover, 8pm. Champion Brewing Company, 324 Sixth St. SE, 295-2739.
