First, melt down your favorite Who, Kinks, Stones, Motown and regular ol’ Hollies records, run them through a blender and toss the goo in your freezer. Wait 30 years to pull it out, then put it in the microwave. Three minutes later, presto: The Black Hollies. Sounding more like London in 1965 than Jersey City in 2008, The Black Hollies take their cues from the power-poppin’ mods of that former era and add a little soul and psychedelia for flavor. The quartet, featuring former members of the Rye Coalition, offered up its second full-length earlier this year, distinguishing itself as a garage band of sophistication. At least that’s what those sport coats and turtlenecks would have us believe. 9 p.m. at Mercy Lounge —MATT SULLIVAN
