For those of us riding the rails of midlife, the moniker "family band" might evoke the sugary oft-conservative likes of The Osmonds or The Partridges (but if you immediately thought of Dr. Funke's 100% Natural Good-Time Family-Band Solution, we should be friends).

It's unfortunate, because many talented musicians wouldn't be where they are if they hadn't started out as kids spending hours noodling around or jamming with siblings or cousins—some even carry on into adulthood, like Tyler, Texas-born Eisley.

Because most of Eisley's members share the last name DuPree, it might be easy to write it off as another feel-good family band but, if you're a fan of rich, addictive, melodic indie-pop/rock, you don't want to (dis)miss Eisley, whose young members managed to shine—in part because of the DuPree sisters' sweet haunting vocals—despite the grip of new bands always popping up.

The Eisleys might be tight-knit, but that doesn't mean you can't join their family of fans.

With Merriment, 8 p.m., $15. Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., 208-343-0886, neurolux.com.
