If you haven’t scored tickets to tonight’s show at DAR Constitution Hall (1776 D St. NW), you might have to settle for waving to the Shins from “Such Great Heights.” (TicketMaster should have tickets left for those who don’t want to troll the Internet and don’t mind obstructed views.) Odds are, it’ll be worth it. The folky indie band that actor-director Zach Braff “discovered” and presented to a world of would-be fans through his 2004 film “Garden State” is now touring in support of its January release, “Wincing the Night Away,” their third full-length release on Sub Pop. It evinces a slight turn in direction, characterized by a more electronic sound. But the record also shows the group relying on its foundation: obscure lyrics and a knack for crafting clever indie rock tunes that linger in your mind.
