I have been listening on my iPod to this Nada Surf concert for a couple of weeks and I find it refreshing. Nada Surf has a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers feel, but being a trio they are more bare bones. In this concert they were assisted by a guest musician.
If you do not have time to listen to the entire concert, the first three encore numbers might be a good place to sample:
Blizzard of '77
Blonde on Blonde
The Kaki King concert on this link is also interesting - often she plays the guitar like it were percussion. I found the other opening act - the Jealous Girlfriends - to be "so so."
