Jane Jane Pollock

Both of these bands have ties to Florida and Georgia, so they’ve teamed up to do an eight-date tour of the neighborly states. What this means for you is two headline-quality bands on one intimate bill. Orlando symphonic folk act Loud Valley is celebrating the vinyl release of their debut album on Austin, Texas, label Electric Kittyland Records, while Florida-Georgia band Jane Jane Pollock is just celebrating their own glorious weirdness. Like an indie band rendering a spaghetti-western soundtrack, Loud Valley takes folk music out on horseback and gallops it majestically over sun-baked sierras. The kitchen-sink art-pop of Jane Jane Pollock, however, virtually defies classification and description. With a big repository of noisemakers and a terminal aversion to convention, their genre-busting style sounds like it should be a hopeless scramble, but it’s not. Just wait til you see their powerful rhythmic displays. – Bao Le-Huu (with Spirit Tramp; 9 p.m. at Stardust Video & Coffee, 1842 E. Winter Park Road; $5; 407-623-3393;
