Columbus, Ohio-based folk punks Saintseneca flourish in the simplicity of the music. It's not simple in the sense that it's musically void of creativity, but it is straight forward, honest and, as a result, captivating. The folky tunes of Saintseneca are not solely comprised of standard folk instruments, band members routinely use a baglama, a balalaika and a bouzouki—partnered with more standard instruments such as ukuleles, guitars and banjos—creates a unique and original sound. While based in Columbus, the band has roots in small a small Appalachian town in Ohio, where the band formed before going to college together in Columbus. The group is touring on its most recent record, Pillar of Na, which band lander Zac Little has said is the most complex work to date. The new album mulls how principle songwriter Little processes memories. He grew up in a small church and began preaching as a teenager. Now he's more interested in listening, and questioning.

With Nic Delffs, Otis Crooks. 8:30 p.m. $10-$12. Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., Boise,
