From East Nashville's art deco district, melodic rock quintet Auto Defiance sounds more post-Velvet Underground, more post-Guided by Voices, more post-Collective Soul than, say, The Band Perry. Or whatever. Their lush and expansive single "Heart Attack,” deals with the excesses of Hollywood and materialism. It recalls glittery dance floors and late-night drives. Auto Defiance plays the Emerald Lounge on Saturday, Jan. 5. A Great Disaster and Matt Sanders Band also perform. 9 p.m., $5. http://www.emeraldlounge.com.
