INDIE ROCK | Ratboys 

If a band identifies itself as "post-" something, I'm in. The Chicago-based, post-country band Ratboys is no different. On its just-released album, "GN," Ratboys play straightforward indie songs with subtle country rock tendencies. There's a dreamy, lo-fi ambience throughout, perpetuated by Julia Steiner's irresistibly pleasant vocals and the constant jangle of Steiner and David Sagan's guitars. With a bit of country and a decent amount of grungy surf vibes, there's a dazed, blissed-out quality to the music that is nothing but appealing. Ratboys will be joined by regional bands Del Paxton, Total Yuppies, and California Cousins.

Ratboys will perform on Friday, July 14, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $8-$10. bugjar.com; ratboys.bandcamp.com.
