MOTOR CITY LOVERS
Anyone looking to scrub the sound of last year from his ears would do well to catch Tyveks show Saturday night at Glasslands or Sunday night at the Mercury Lounge: On their recent In the Red debut, Nothing Fits, these Motor City garage-punk geeks blast through a dozen stripped-down barnburners in about the same time it takes Kanye West or Arcade Fire to complete an instrumental outro. Song topics include endless yards of paper trails, pricks in the passing lane, and how frontman Kevin Boyer would like to make it with you. Dudes prescription for an ailing world? More fuzz, of course. Tonight at 8, Glasslands, 289 Kent Avenue, Brooklyn, ticketfly.com $8$10; Sunday at 8, Mercury Lounge, 217 East Houston Street, 212-260-4700, $8
Sat., Jan. 15, 8 p.m.; Sun., Jan. 16, 8 p.m., 2011
