There's a healthy dose of The Cure in the Shout Out Louds, an ultra-melodic pop band from Sweden that recorded its latest album, "Our Ill Wills," with Bjrn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John. Though the group's sophomore LP is less ebullient than its high-spirited 2005 debut "Howl Howl Gaff Gaff," it continues that album's obsession with stately strings, twinkly pianos and breezy pop songcraft with alternating male and female vocal leads.Opener Johnossi is a hard-rocking Swedish duo that is signed to V2 Scandinavia. Nico Vega is an L.A. rock trio that was among the first acts to hook up with MySpace Records.Doors at 8 p.m. First band at 9 p.m.
