What To Do Thursday: Margot, Molly & Dex

Even though the Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears concert is postponed due to a death in the family, lots of enticing shows remain on Thursday's docket.

Indianapolis indie-folk anthem authors Margot & the Nuclear So and So's, who recently endured a bit of lineup fluctuation but continue to feature Columbus' Erik Kang on violin/guitar/pedal steel, will be at Circus, 1227 N. High St. Tickets cost $14 at the door. 9 p.m. showtime, starting with Dolson.

Less than two weeks from St. Patrick's Day, it's a good time to see Flogging Molly. Conveniently, the Celtic punks will be at LC Pavilion, 405 Neil Ave. Frank Turner and The Architects open the show. Doors open at 6 p.m. It's sold out, but if you decide to scalp tickets, remember face value is $25.

Then there's Cincinnati's hootin, hollerin' The Sundresses at The Treehouse, 887 Chambers Rd. The Jellyhearts and Chris Burney provide solid support. 10 p.m., $5.

Dexter Romweber Duo, featuring Mr. Romweber of Flat Duo Jets fame, will be at Cafe Bourbon Street, 2216 Summit St. Jack White credits Dex with inspiring much of the White Stripes' sound. Not sure who's opening, but it'll be Bobo's standard 10 p.m. start time, and Dex's MySpace says admission is $7.

And I'd be remiss not to mention a show that brings together the artists between two of my favorite solo releases of 2009, Dane Terry and Jonathan Hape. They'll be joined by Dottie & Clyde and Sissy at Rumba Cafe, 2507 Summit St. 10 p.m., $5.
