SHOW: Saturday at Mercury Lounge ($12)

If you’ve been wondering what a post-punk soul band might sound like, here it is, in the form of JC Brooks and his group the Uptown Sound. The Chicago band just released its third studio album, called “Howl” – and on it the group  channels the feeling of its sweaty, seriously high octane show: wild abandon.
