Brooklyn indie trio Nude Beach keeps it simple, classic, comfortable like an old pair of Chucks. They’ve got the jangly guitar solos and the sweaty sideburns, the lovelorn verses and the shout-with-me choruses. Their latest, II (Other Music), makes no bones about its Tom Petty chord progressions and Elvis Costello vocals on songs like “Some Kinda Love” and “Radio.” This is music by people who love rock ’n’ roll, for people who love rock ’n’ roll. Nude Beach proves you can still win with the old playbook.
Mon., Nov. 5, 7 p.m., $25, with Roky Erickson and Hounds of Baskerville, Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 215-232-2100, utphilly.com.
