TONIGHT!

Adrian and the Sickness, led by Helles Belles front woman Adrian Conner, plays rocking, gritty, garage-y power-pop-punk. Since forming, they’ve released a vast collection of singles, EPs and albums, including their latest, the self-released Criminal/Dog Days 7-inch. They’ve worked with the Go-Go’s Kathy Valentine, who produced their fourth album, 2009’s B.F.D. and recently were honored by their hometown with the Best Punk Band award at the Austin Music Awards. Check out our interview with Conner here. Jones Radiator. 9 pm. $5. (21)
