July 10. Hook-happy power pop trio the Figgs have been at it for nearly 30 years, recording and touring on their own as well as backing up Graham Parker and Tommy Stinson. This month, the Saratoga Springs-born outfit—singer/guitarist Mike Gent, bassist Pete Donnelly (who's also in the revamped NRBQ), and drummer Pete Hayes—celebrates the release of their 12th studio album, Other Planes of Here, with this high-powered hit job at the Low Beat. If you dig hummable bubblegum melodies with crunchy chunks of tough guitar—think the Jam, the Buzzcocks, or Paul Collins's Beat—well, then, you are in for quite a tasty treat here. Opener TBA. (Eternal Crimes, Home Body, and Slowshine rock July 9; the Yellow Dress, Better Pills, and the Firs appear July 13.) 9pm. $10. Albany. (518) 432-6572; Thelowbeat.com.

Here's a clip of the Figgs playing their song, Chevy Nova.
