Minia­ture Tigers re­leased Fortress, their sec­ond full-length al­bum on Mod­ern Art Records. The band’s ex­panded sound — let’s call it “space pop” in the tra­di­tion of An­i­mal Col­lec­tive but with less em­pha­sis on synths — oozes with in­stru­men­tal ex­per­i­men­ta­tion and psy­che­delic me­an­der­ings, while front­man Char­lie Brand trades his heart-on-my-sleeve tone for a more up­beat lyrical ap­proach. Minia­ture Tigers per­forms at 7:30 p.m. Satur­day, July 31, at Santa Fe Brew­ing Com­pany (37 Fire Place, 424-3333). The Spinto Band opens. Tick­ets are $9 in ad­vance from SFBC and Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.com), $10 at the door. Ma­cau-born pi­anist
