Circle Jerks @ Safari Sam’s – As I’ve said before, Group Sex holds up really well. I missed them at the F Yeah Fest, so I’d like to see them. They’re going out on the road soon with Pennywise. This is a party to celebrate the release of the new American Hardcore movie.
The Presets @ Spaceland ($10) –The Presets are an Australian “indie/electro” buzz band that Flavorpill thinks you’ll like. One of the guys from Bauhaus and two of the guys from Nine Inch Nails will be guest DJs. Does it make you nervous when a band is listed on a Club’s site and the same gig is not listed on the band’s site (either Myspace or official site)? If Fields is playing Spaceland it sounds like something definitely worth checking out. Just go to their Myspace page and listen to “Song For the Fields.” It’s good. I’m just not sure they’re actually playing tonight? Anybody know?
Ratatat / Envelopes / Panther @ Troubadour (Sold Out) – In case you didn’t get tix, Panther and Envelopes are playing Spaceland tomorrow. I like Envelopes. Haven’t heard much of Ratatat.
Veruca Salt @ Key Club ($18)
