BRANDY IRVON, SCOTT CARTER, MARK AARON JAMES — Tonight, three finalists from Eddie's open mic competitions are showcased. The show is a bargain. It features the sensitive yet powerful vocals of Attic showcase regular Irvon, the wit and wisdom of Carter and the everyman's perspective of James. A good sampler of the best the Attic has to offer in one easy-going evening. Just be quiet and listen, OK? Eddie's Attic (Smith)
DOG FASHION DISCO — DFD tinker with the same sort of Something Wicked This Way Comes heavy-rock horror-show that works so well for quirky carnies like Rob Zombie and Mr. Bungle. Organs squall with the manic energy of a funhouse while guitar churn, drums pound and veins threaten to burst as the lead singer bellows. Not new, not bad (except for the band name). PlanetJam Cotton Club (Ware)
HOT AUGUST KNIGHTS — A month of Neil Diamond-in-the-rough rumbles to its finale tonight. The Hot August boys are back to take one more punch at the wide-ranging repertoire of esteemed Monkees songwriter and part-time movie star. Also on the bill is Cadillac Jones. Star Bar (Nicoll)
PARK BENCH BLUES BAND, FREELOADER — While blues bands can be seen every night of the damn week in some smoky club anywhere in the world, you don't often see a band like Park Bench. Instead of some sweaty guy growlin' the blues, there's a female vocalist and violinist. They call it Bonnie Raitt-meets-the Band-meets-Elmore James. Recently, the Park Benchers performed Allman Brothers and Led Zeppelin albums in their entirety. Opening is Freeloader, a New York-based trio doing the rootsy Americana thing. Smith's Olde Bar (Smith)
UNION UNDERGROUND, SLAVES ON DOPE, DUST FOR LIFE — While preferring a crunchier, more industrial sound, Union Underground are unabashed disciples of glam-rock's bigger-is-better presentation. Bigger doesn't always mean deeper, however, as perpetually angry and defiant lyrics tend toward one-dimensionality. Quebec-bred four-piece Slaves on Dope have made a name for themselves with Pantera-style hoarse vocals and tight guitar-thatched textures. Completing the bill is Memphis's Dust for Life, who take the most reserved and melodic approach of this heavy, aggressive lineup. Masquerade Music Park (Hutchinson)
