Live Tonight: Dresses, The Blow, The Colourist

Dresses It doesn’t seem very seasonal to release such bright and poppy tunes just when the leaves are putting on their colorful coats, but Sun Shy, the latest from indie-pop duo Dresses, sounds just like summertime. The harmonizing of Timothy Heller’s lovely lilt and Jared Ryan Maldonado’s more soulful voice and bright guitar work create that extra bit of sunshine you’ve been craving. With Limousines and Mona. Chop Suey. 7 p.m. $12 adv./$15 DOS. All ages. AZARIA C. PODPLESKY

The Blow Last month’s self-titled release offers Khaela Maricich and Melissa Dyne’s first new material in seven years. That break has done little to change the group’s sound: thoroughly enjoyable, carefully constructed electro-pop whose sometimes-cloying cuteness is buoyed by Maricich’s plainspoken songwriting. With Kisses. Neumos. 8 p.m. $15 adv. ANDREW GOSPE

The Colourist The indie-rock quartet behind the earworm “Little Games” may spell its name as our neighbors across the border do, but this band is from the sunny state of California—something that comes across in the music, full of warm melodies and pop-tinged guitar riffs. Their four-track EP, Lido, is out now. With The Naked and Famous. Showbox SoDo. 8 p.m. $25 adv./$28 DOS. All ages. ACP
