April Smith sings a song about eating her boyfriends. EATING THEM. And somehow, cannibalism has made her popular. Read our interview with the DIY singer here, and check her out tonight at the Bing Crosby Theater. 8 pm. All-ages. $17.
Check out the sexy sounds of Mirror Mirror, an up-and-coming local band that we profiled here, tonight at the Hop with Zoanthrop and Power Chief. They play at 7 pm. $5. All-ages.
And then there's Terrain, of course. Here's the schedule for music tonight:
5:20 pm: Stone Tobey
6 pm: Wonder Wonder
7 pm: Surprise guest
8 pm: Horse Thieves
9 pm: House of Ghosts
10 pm: Summer in Siberia
11 pm: Ocean is … Black Ceiling
Midnight: Purple & Green
Now, there's no James Pants on the schedule. But I swear it'll be OK. Check out this video of Purple & Green. Now tell me you're not gonna wanna dance to that!
Let your eardrums bleed a little tomorrow at A Club — loud locals A Pyrrhic Victory, Straight to Our Enemies, Yukon the Archer, Among Thieves and Asylus play. 5:30 pm. $5. All-ages.
Over yonder in the International District, some of our favorite locals rock the Checkerboard Tavern: Mythship, True FO and the excellent, excellent surf-punk of BBBandits. 9 pm. $3. "Tavern" probably means you have to be 21 to go.
And if you never got the chance to see Metallica circa 1984 — the Cliff Burton Years (rest in peace, brother) — you can get glimpse of the action when our own local Metallica tribute band, Blistered Earth, takes the stage at the Knit tomorrow night. They're worth the $13. Check out my profile of the band from earlier this year, and head down for the show (with Fallen Regiment and Soblivios) at 8 pm. All-ages.
