King Tuff’s Spooky Rock and Roll Stylings
King Tuff is the alias and band of Brattleboro, Vt. native and L.A. resident Kyle Thomas. His music varies from mellow psychedelia to blazing power pop. Imbued with Mr. Tuff’s righteous guitar parts, every bit of it is worthy of earnest Bic salutations or fully engaged fist pumps. You can see King Tuff play live on Monday at the Launchpad with similarly amazing L.A. band Audacity. In the meantime, eavesdrop on the telephone conversation King Tuff and I had about jock jams and the magic of music. And I totally was not the stoned one.

Multiball Mayhem Pinball Tournament
You needn't be a deaf, dumb and blind kid to play pinball—but it obviously helps. If you need to prove you've got what it takes to be a pinball master, grab a blindfold and some ear plugs and get down to the Multiball Mayhem Pinball Tournament at Sister, on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 2 to 7pm. Learn tips and tricks from available experts (all fans of The Who, presumably) and compete for the coveted title of Pinball Wizard. Supple wrists, cash prizes and an IFPA ranking await the winner. Entry to the competition costs $5, but bring your own quarters for the machines. The tournament is open to all players over 21.
