For its musical influences, Ex Norwegian draws from the Kinks, Lou Reed, and Talking Heads. For its name, the Miami foursome borrowed from a Monty Python episode. The group formed in 2008 and is touring in support of its debut full-length album, "Standby," a combination of power-pop, classic rock, and indie music. This name was originally an inside joke, but quickly found additional meaning in politics, along with a few tracks like "My Name Is Paul," dedicated to former World Bank president Paul Wolfowitz. Dirt Thieves also performs (political references with this name?). 9 p.m. $7. 21+. O'Brien's, 3 Harvard Ave., Allston. 617-782-6245. www.obrienspubboston.com
