The Poison Control Center
There's a hell of a lot going on Thursday night (White Buffalo at the Silver Moon and The Aggrolites at the Domino Room, just to name a few), but there's another show worth checking out down on the south end of town and it involves Poison Control Center, an Iowa-based power-pop act. They're instantly quirky with great Built to Spill-like hooks and a crazy live show. 8pm. Mountain's Edge Bar, 61131 S. Hwy 97.
