THE TONTONS Sometimes The Tontons feel like twee done right, replete with bright colors, danciness, splashing guitars and just a bit of reverb-soaked nostalgia. And sometimes they come in sultry or swing with cabaret flavors, not unlike a full-band take on Morcheeba. Asli Omar, vocalist for this Houston outfit, is not only possessed of a remarkable voice, but has learned to control it well — presenting everything from smoky lounge-jazz to assertive trip-hop and indie-rock within a band capable and willing to try these styles on for size. After all, the new EP, Golden, closes on ukulele-driven jazz swing. Who knew? With Banditos. $6. Oct. 24, 10:30 p.m. The Evening Muse, 3227 N. Davidson St. 704-376-3737.
