1. Fine Pets w/ The Dead Beat & Industrial Park

When: Wednesday, March 28th–9pm
Why: According to Facebook, the elusive Woody Allen will be there. If that’s not enough to intrigue you, rising from the ashes of Best Supporting Actress comes newly formed Fine Pets. They describe their sound as “waves of prickling treble…warbled screams and distant melodies”. And even wetter behind the ears are newcomers The Dead Beat; an all-girl shoegazy quartet with influences like Black Tambourine, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and My Bloody Valentine.

But just don’t show up late for the band you already know and love, come early for the love affair you’re about to start with the electro-pop disco-hop sounds of Onuinu. Key Losers, the new music project from singer/songwriter/guitarist (and only constant member) Katy Davidson, will kick of the night with melody-driven music.

When: Sunday, October 30 – 9pm

- How Much: $12 (+21)
- When: Tonight, June 8th & June 9th – 9pm
- Why: The third full-length release out earlier this year, Dead Reckoning, veers little from what’s worked best in the past: staying true to their folk-bluegrass driven roots.

Catch them tonight with Federale and tomorrow with Kelli Schaefer.
