• Brooklyn Indie Folk quartet Jus Post Bellum comes to Over-the-Rhine's MOTR Pub tonight for a free, 10 p.m. show with local headliners Young Heirlooms. Inspired by traditional American Roots, Blues and Country music, as well as modern Folk, the Civil War and American history in general, Jus Post Bellum (latin for "justice after war") features the captivating dual vocal approach of guitarist/keyboardist Geoffrey Wilson and Hannah Jensen and is fleshed out by the bass and cello of Daniel Dieber and drumming of Zach Dunham. The group's live shows are said to be quiet, mesmerizing affairs, so maybe keep your loudmouth drunkard friends at home for the night. 

Jus Post Bellum's second album, Oh July, is set for a Nov. 12 release. Here is the new album track "Gimme That Gun":

• For Dar Williams' latest album, last year's In the Time of Gods, the veteran Folk singer/songwriter looked to the past to address modern challenges.

The songs on the album, featuring guests Shawn Colvin and Larry Campbell, use characters and tales from Greek mythology to poetically examine today's personal, social and political issues. Always noted for her fantastic lyric writing (which often showcases her sharp wit), In the Time of Gods and its interesting device find Williams really challenging herself and, ultimately, succeeding on levels she hadn't reached before. 

Williams brings her Gods tour to Oakley's 20th Century Theater tonight. Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $25-$30. The show is not general admission; seats are reserved by section. 

Here is the opening track from In the Time of Gods, "I Am the One Who Will Remember Everything":

• Impressive new Cincinnati band Temple plays tonight at Northside's Mayday, the launch of a mini-tour with Columbus Sludge Metal crew Bridesmaid. The band makes compelling progressive, psychedelic Metal and features members of local acts like Black Dove, Paralyzer, The Awakening and Ohio Knife. Tonight's show also features local band Crushed Velvet and kicks off at 10 p.m. There is a $5 cover charge.
