Happening Sunday: Jaill, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and more

-Jaill, Sal Bando, Pellars: In its jangly indie pop, Milwaukee outfit Jaill (pictured) pairs catchy, feel-good tunes with dark, self-loathing lyrics—in the typical fashion of slightly off-kilter indietude adored by summer festivalgoers. Fresh off the release of its fourth album “Brain Cream,” Jaill stops in Baltimore tonight with local surf-pop threesome Sal Bando and the new Quitter offshoot, Pellars. 9:30 p.m., Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St., (410) 662-0069, theottobar.com, $7. (Maura Callahan)

-From the Short List: City Paper contributor Geoffrey Himes hosts the Roots Café singer-songwriter series at An die Musik Live, with special guest Steve Johnson of The Kings of Crownsville. Tascam presents The Baltimore Battle of the Bands at the Ottobar, awarding to the winner a choice of cash, recording equipment, or other prizes. Mighty Mighty Bosstones don’t know how to party at the 9:30 Club in D.C. (Al Shipley)
