Need something to be thankful for? This is it! Waxahatchee, aka Katie Crutchfield, plays thoughtful (but not overwrought) folk-flavored pop songs that will appeal to fans of the very great Hop Along and Laura Stevenson. Also on the bill are Philadelphia’s Swearin’, a pogo-friendly and fuzzy quartet that is at the heart of the recent pop-punk revival (it’s about time that happened, you guys!). Have a listen to their new album, Surfing Strange—it’ll simultaneously tug the heartstrings and put you in the best mood ever. (Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison St,, 8 pm, $10 adv/$12 DOS, all ages)
