Pop for Grownups 

Bishop Allen at the Independent.

Brooklyn's Bishop Allen revolves around the songwriting and singing duo of Harvard grads Justin Rice and Christian Rudder, with various musical accomplices along for the ride. The current buzz on the band has to do with the fact that they put out 12 EPs in 2006, with a total of 58 songs, ranging stylistically from the jumpy Ray Davies—inspired songs of their eponymous debut to vaudevillian ukulele ditties and rhythm-heavy pop/R&B hybrids, all marked by sparkling musicianship, intelligent lyrics, and a devil-may-care attitude. Wednesday, August 1 at the Independent in SF. 8 p.m., $12.00 advance, $14.00 door. www.theindependentsf.com
