Nashville trio Daddy Issues writes refreshing love songs that span the spectrum of sexuality. Packaged like a PBR wrapped in a glittering teal Koozie, the trio's music plays with spectacular self-awareness.

With Diet Cig and World’s Greatest Dad. Free with invite or $8. 8 p.m. Sat., Nov. 19. Masquerade, 695 North Ave. N.E. 404-577-8178. www.masq.com.
