Primarily the brainchild of frontman Alex Church, Sea Wolf perfectly encapsulate the breed of melancholy rainy-day pop rock that has both its masters (Death Cab for Cutie) and its fakers (take your pick: Coldplay or that band you heard last week on Grey’s Anatomy). Forunately, Church & Co. fall squarely in column A, due in no small part to crisp, evocative songwriting and an expert grasp of atmospherics. It is appropriate that the band’s debut full-length Leaves in the River opens with the gentle, slightly distorted sound of rainfall—it’s the perfect aural introduction to an album of wistful, pretty, folk-inflected pop accented by perfectly placed strings and just enough indie quirk. 9 p.m. at Exit/In —LEE STABERT
