Stephen Malkmus came to attention as a member of alt-rock icons Pavement, but his presumed side project with The Jicks has been going on for nearly 20 years. The Portland, Oregon, group’s latest album, Sparkle Hard, encompasses the momentous opener “Cast Off,” which moves from an austere piano-laden introduction into surging waves of guitar, and more brightly poppy tunes like “Future Suite,” which is coated in a veneer of sparkly glitter. “Bike Lane” is a more anthemic, guitar-based classic rocker, whereas “Middle America” is introspective and contemplative as Malkmus croons sentimentally, “Crush me back to where I belong.” While the band will be part of a big bill at the Greek Theatre with Courtney Barnett and Waxahatchee in October, tonight’s a chance to see them in a more intimate venue.
