Beauty Bar's weekly party-arts showcase and Berlin's resident thrower of get-downs combine forces for tonight's Salonathon vs. Stardust: Down & Dirty. The blowout features performances from Salonathoners Po' Chop, Witch Hazel, Dirty Grits, and Erin Kilmurray & Mikey Rioux, as well as jams from DJs [X]P and Danny LeRoy. No cover if you RSVP.
Reunited 90s alt-rockers Failure perform at the Metro. "On their recordings Failure were often basically a duo of studio rats Greg Edwards and Ken Andrews, who crafted pushy, muscular space rock with undeniable hooks, progressive twists and turns, and layers of eccentric and exciting guitar sounds," writes Luca Cimarusti in Soundboard.
Reader critic Jack Helbig recommends Bellboys, Bears, and Baggage, the latest interactive performance from Redmoon Theater. "[H]alf the fun of this show comes from watching other audience members as they (and we) explore the many richly decorated rooms built into Redmoon's huge warehouse space—and observe the myriad enigmatic scenes being played out therein by a host of identically dressed bellboys, young lovers, and people in bear costumes."
