With this third release and second EP, female-fronted San Francisco quintet the New Up has grown into one of the Bay Area's most interesting rock groups. What began as anonymous alt-rock on an uncertain foundation has matured into a Radiohead-inspired hard-rock hybrid delivering as many familiar references as trademark touches. The songs aren't all winners, but the potential is palpable.

At Bottom of the Hill (1233 17th St., San Francisco) on August 21. 9:30 p.m., $12
