We can't figure out why former Botch frontman Dave Verellen's subsequent project, Narrows, hasn't received more attention.

Fruits Bats' most recent record, The Ruminant Band, is a marked step in a different direction from the Bats' standard indie-folk fare - and it's proven to be a fruitful transition.

Pure Prairie League at the Triple Door, 7:30 p.m., $35, all ages

The only reason Pure Prairie League's first two albums (Bustin' Out and Pure Prairie League) aren't as esteemed as '70s alt-country classics like, say, Grievous Angel is because frontman and chief composer Craig Fuller, a conscientious objector, was forced to leave the band to work in a VA hospital during the Vietnam War. Without Fuller, the band started producing horrible soft rock. Now that former frontman Craig Fuller has returned to Pure Prairie League, however, perhaps he can write some new songs so we can pretend like the band's soft-rock days never happened.

Supervillains, Mike Pinto, Dat Fiya, Rude Tuna, Camp10 at Studio Seven, 7 p.m., $15, all ages

While the idea of post-Sublime skunk-rock may be somewhat less-than-appealing to those who enjoy keeping their hipster radar on at all times, the Supervillains manage to front a rollicking, party-hearty atmosphere while dishing out some surprisingly intricate, brass-flecked punk jams.
