Music to Your Ears

Pre-Crawl Warm-up--The two bands created by this year's Edge Ultimate Band Contest (Blind Dryve and Possess and Conceal) will take to the Launchpad stage on Friday for a deciding head-to-head rock-off. Prizes for the winning act include a guaranteed slot at Spring Crawl the following evening. Needless to say, we didn't know which band that would be when we went to press, so we included them both in this week's Spring Crawl feature. May the best band win! Doors open at 6 p.m.

Spring Crawl Headliners Stereotyperider and Guttermouth

National acts at the Crawl

Guttermouth

In grade school, there were always kids that mother and father felt it was best I try to avoid if at all possible. Perhaps if I had not heeded their well-intentioned advice, I would be headlining Spring Crawl. At any rate, I’m not, and Guttermouth is, and that’s probably for the best. These foul-mouthed punks from Huntington Beach, Calif., are not about to stop offending anyone anytime soon. Their latest release, Eat Your Face, features a song in which front man Mark Adkins vividly describes a case of bestiality involving his mother and an all-too-eager donkey.

The 88

Music Magnified

The 88

with Matt Costa and Lowlights

Monday, May 1, Launchpad (21-and-over); $7: For those of us who just can't stop riding around on sunny summer days with friendly mod jams in the tape deck, The 88 is the next quencher. Hollywood is loving their grainy, under-produced '60s-esque albums, too. In addition to blowing though our chunk of desert, The 88 has landed a role on the sitcom How I Met Your Mother (the episode is titled "Best Prom Ever") one week after hitting the Launchy stage.

Flyleaf

Music Magnified

Flyleaf

with Dropping Daylight and Resident Hero

Tuesday, May 2, Launchpad (21-and-over); $12 and $14: When it comes to earnest hurt, Flyleaf pulls it off. Sure, lyrics rub elbows with notebook-margin cliché, but the hooks are golden and the riffs inspired. Singer Lacey Mosley is what everyone's talking about, with her particularly well-sung combo of fragile and fierce. She's fond of those brittle jumps you hear from the likes of Sarah McLachlan. Mosley sings a pain pileup, with a side of atmospheric guitar and rumbling drums. The message is survival, or what they're calling "heavy positivism."

Sonic Reducer

Bang! Bang! Decked Out · Yeah Yeah Yeahs Show Your Bones

The first full-length release from Chicago sex rockers Bang! Bang! ain’t all fun and games. They may sound quite a bit like the B-52’s, but, aside from a few cheeky tracks like “Nervous Tick,” Bang! Bang! maintains a punkish presence more evocative of Babes in Toyland or L7 than of more glitzy new wave revivalists. Bang! Bang! give bands like The Epoxies and Menthol something to consider with their less flippant approach to the genre.

Son Volt

Show Up!

Son Volt and Drive-By Truckers with Curt Kirkwood

"There's a lot of people driving more than four hours to come see this show," says Neal Copperman of AMP Concerts. As soon as it was announced, people started writing to him, asking about tickets from Arizona and Colorado. In a town where alternative bands with an older following often don't get the attention they deserve, that kind of enthusiasm is contagious.

EVENT HORIZON (Sunday, Dec 18)

Tilting to the Left, Nudging to the Right

Pinball Tournament • arcade games • Food Drive

As my friends in Rudest Priest say, “I may not get the high score, but then again I might/ I just wanna play a little pinball tonight.” And this Sunday, Dec. 18, it doesn't really matter if you get the high score, everybody wins because at this Pinball Tournament—sponsored by and held at Sister—is also a food drive. All pinball machines on site will be set to free to play from 4pm onward, so get there early and warm up your fingers. There's a $10 buy-in for the tournament, and while non-perishable food donations aren't required, I'm just going to say this: Don't be an asshole. You're not going to eat that canned corn.
