No Bird Sing is here to make you think about death and get sad and stuff. Ok, ok. That’s actually Michael Cera’s fictitiously awesome band Sex Bob-omb from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, but the same could be said for our favorite distressed and depressed local group, led by MC Joe Horton. The three-piece band’s hybrid of hip-hop and gloomy alt-rock shines on its most recent album, 2011′s Theft of the Commons. Openers are Jordan Looney and Thank You Notes, which is having a CD release. 1/21. 9 p.m. $6.
