Folk/power-pop trio Common Rotation is one of those must-see indie acts; knowledge of them rises exponentially depending on how tapped in you are to the geek world. They constantly tour and perform with the likes of They Might be Giants but also command a massive online following, thanks, in part to vocalist Adam Busch's acting career (he played evil science-nerd Warren on Buffy the Vampire Slayer; if there's a testament to Common Ro's wit-fully rockin' repertoire, it's that so many have managed to forgive him for killing Tara. Except Willow; she kind of went ballistic, didn't she?). Busch and bandmates Eric Kufs and Jordan Katz land at Largo's little room on Friday, so if you want to catch some of those infectious gee-tar melodies, you'd better get on it now, the joint's going to fill up fast.
