Nice & Brown, DJ Theckectik & Pelvis Costello
It's always nice to bring out the funk and Nice & Brown know how to get some booties shaking. Plus, there comes a time when you have to go see someone named Pelvis Costello. Don't let this chance pass you by, because then you might have to settle for Anus Joplin. 9:30 pm. Thursday, Dec. 10. Astro Lounge, 939 NW Bond St. No cover.
Trailer 31 & The Road Sodas
An acoustic album release party in a bookstore sounds like a wonderful way to spend a cold winter night. Trailer 31 is releasing its debut album and The Road Sodas are coming down from Portland to be a part of the festivities, so pull up a comfy chair and enjoy. 7 pm. Friday, Dec. 11. Dudley's Bookshop, 135 NW Minnesota Ave. No cover.
I Declare War
Sometimes everything isn't sunshine and happy elves during Christmas, so some super mind-numbing deathcore metal might help you forget those deep, dark holiday doldrums. Time to make your eyes bleed for Santa! 7 pm. Saturday, Dec. 12. Domino Room, 51 NW Greenwood Ave. $12-$15.
