Joan of Arc, 31Knots at Vera Project

Joan of Arc mastermind Tim Kinsella has been one of the most prodigious and quietly influential figures in emo/indie/post-what-have-you for two decades, since his teen years in the posthumously revered Cap'n Jazz. Since then, he's recorded more than a dozen records with Joan of Arc and other bands, subtly shifting shapes but always retaining a singular and impressive voice, his intricately winding lyrics every bit as distinctive as his cracked yet tuneful howl. (Vera Project, Seattle Center, 956-8372. 7:30 pm, $10, all ages.)

Essentially, Tim Kinsella is a more pretentious but less talented knock-off of his younger brother, Mike Kinsella.

Joan of Arc is like someone listened to Neutral Milk Hotel and tried to be even more pretentious. It's unlistenable bullshit.
