Cave Singers are a jewel of the Seattle music scene; beloved locally, copied copiously, and quiet nationally. On paper, the band sounds like what we've come to expect from Seattle's boots-and-buckle set: precious, pretty, somewhat folky, pleasantly country, easy-on-the ears dust rock. Where they distinguish themselves is in the intensity: the load-bearing beauty of Derek Fudesco's guitar, Pete Quirk's desperate vocals, and Marty Lund's uncomplicated hustle and stomp behind the drums.

On stage, as on record - including their latest, No Witch, out Tuesday - the band brings an urgency that has yet to be replicated by any other members of the class.

Side helpings of Case Studies-- featuring former Duke Jesse Lortz--and Whalebones, assure this night to be one of the must-see Pabst-soaked affairs of the young year.

The show starts at 9 p.m., the cover is $12, and the New Frontier Lounge is located at 301 E. 25th St.
