Indie pop band Shayna and the Bulldog are touring in support of a self-titled album released earlier this year.

The band — keyboardist Charles Castle, bassist Joel Daniel, guitarist Cozy Gazelle and percussionist Nina Doherty — plays at 9:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9, at Alex's Plaza Restaurant and Bar, 35 N. Main St., Ashland.

The foursome, which hails from Davis, Calif., came about through Craigslist ads and coffeehouse encounters. The new album, produced by DOOMbird's frontman Kris Anaya, marries rock-infused songwriting and chamber-pop stylings in a way that recalls Death Cab for Cutie, The National and late-era Beach Boys.

The cover to the band's show at Alex's is $5. See www.shaynaandthebulldog.com or call 541-482-8818.
