Brasher and Cook of The Moving Front.

9 p.m., Juanita’s. $5.

After a five-month absence from the local stage, one of the most reliably remarkable acts in town returns with its second LP in the pipeline and, still, it’s worth noting, with guitarist Scott Cook on board (his recent solo work and collaborations with Julian Lennon notwithstanding). The new album, “Everyday Dissonance,” brings them back to gigging because, well, gigs make money and money prints music. Sporting guest spots from their old guitarist (current live guitarist for Green Day), Jeff Matika, as well as members of Stella Fancy and Velvet Kente, it’s a curiosity of an album that needs to be in ears sooner rather than later. Their self-titled 2007 album is a bona fide local classic and, judging from the couple of new tracks on their MySpace, the second will keep the familiar jabbing guitars and gasping vocals like Joe Strummer’s jittery little brother intact. The guys are playing alongside peppy local favorites Magic Hassle and the reliably jaw-dropping Underclaire.
