Too good to be free

Jake Bugg is in town, with his dazzling roots rock/power pop blend. Don't let his voice put you off -- it's a thin-toned thing that you get used to pretty quickly, and you'll need to in order to access these intelligent, hook-filled tunes that swing for the fences. This English singer-songwriter is someone you will be paying for soon enough, so live it up now, as Bugg has that difficult-to-define "it." He's making waves on iTunes and has a major deal with Mercury Records. 9 p.m. Saturday, GMan Tavern, 3740 N. Clark St.
