Anytime there’s a new Gentleman Jesse recording, it’s a reason to celebrate. So, crank up the old Victrola (that’s a record player for you youngsters), because this is a release celebration for the Atlanta musician’s second full-length album of blazing rock that splices together jangly ’70s power-pop and the more melodic edges of vintage punk. In fact, much of “Leaving Atlanta,” out March 20, sounds like it could have come from that exact moment in music history when British pub rock crashed into punk. Anyone with an affection for Rockpile, Nick Lowe, Graham Parker or the like should definitely check it out.
9 p.m. March 9. $10. The EARL, 488 Flat Shoals Ave. S.E., Atlanta. 404-522-3950.
