Wakey!Wakey!’s style of music is relentlessly poppy. Between the string quartet and Mike Grubbs’ voice, it sounds like it could be the background music for any coming of age TV show. And, in fact, it has been featured on One Tree Hill. These pop-rockers are certainly headed in the right direction, if there is one. They’ll be working their magic at Le Poisson Rouge on Jan. 13. $13 adv. $15 day of. 18 +. 9:45 p.m.
