But I Like It

Prism Bitch • punk • Shitty and the Terribles • garage • Gerunding

Let's be clear: the premier psych-y, slithery rocanrol event of February takes place at (where else) the Launchpad on Friday, Feb. 23. That's when local, sultry sound stars and de facto leaders of the soulful garage rock unit of this city's scene, Prism Bitch take the stage to blind 21+ locals with sonic and spectral divination from the mouths of prison-bound purveyors followed by no-wave Shitty and the Terribles complete with Nueva York style aggression and power chords. Whatever, it's $7 and they totally rock. And psych-pop pronunciators Gerunding (everything they sing ends in -ing, one hopes) open up this super psychedelic can of worms that are actually magic mushrooms that are actually … oh my gawd, you better go and see for yourself at 9pm.

Great EXXXpectations

The Open Bra • Mayo Lua de Frenchie • Miss Behavin • Burlesque improv competition • DJ CS Rucker • dance, house

Work up your courage or down a few beers this Saturday, Feb. 24 at Duel Brewing and take the stage for the The Open Bra, a bi-monthly burlesque improv competition. Performers are assigned a song at the beginning of the evening, and then hit the stage to enchant the audience and judges Miss Behavin, Mayo Lua de Frenchie and Annie O'Roar. And hey, if you're too nervous to take a turn dancing, you still get to weigh in on runner-up and winner slots as a member of the kowtowing crowd. This free, 21+ doors at 8pm and the event begins at 9pm. Plan on staying late for a dance party afterwards.
