Pioneers West's debut album, Move West, was recorded live in the ballroom above The New Frontier Lounge. Released in 2010, it captures a band at its most vital, so confident in the energy that they conjure that they decided to lay their songs out unvarnished, straight to tape. But this sort of energy is never destined to last. A little over a year ago, Pioneers West decided to set the band aside and dedicate more time to things like children and marriage and careers - you know, all that grown-up stuff. After more than a year apart, though, Pioneers West will be reuniting to help celebrate the Top of Tacoma's six-year anniversary. Their yelpy post-punk-shades of Modest Mouse and Built to Spill-will be on full display. Has time affected their self-described sound of "western doom." Have jobs and kids hurt the caterwaul? Hear for yourself.

PIONEERS WEST, w/ Wheelies, 9 p.m., Top of Tacoma Bar and Café, 3529 McKinley Ave, Tacoma, no cover, 253.272.1502
