Listen to Jack + Eliza and you might imagine yourself picnicking in the park with a nice glass of champers. Their plush melodies, perky vocals and youthful lyrics make you feel, well, bubbly. Young, pretty, with a laidback vibe, New York City natives Jack Staffen and Eliza Callahan are what the youth would call #goals. They met around age 13, when Jack briefly drummed for Eliza’s garage band; now he attends NYU’s Gallatin School and she goes to Columbia.

Tonight’s act at Baby’s All Right is mysteriously listed as “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” but don’t expect PotterCon redux. That image of Alfred E. Neuman as the Boy the Who Lived is clearly a reference to a certain gap-toothed master of irony. And the opening band, “Another Juan,” would seem to be a play on his newly released mini-LP, Another One. You guessed it: Mac DeMarco is prone to having secret shows, and the folks at Baby’s All Right confirm that this is one of them. If you miss tonight’s all-ages affair (tickets, just $5, will be available at the doors, which open at 8:30 p.m.), feel free to say, “What, me worry?” Mac will be playing some not-so-secret shows at Bowery Ballroom on Aug. 17, Webster Hall on Aug. 18, Music Hall of Williamsburg on Aug. 19 and Warsaw on Aug. 20.
