If you're getting bored of staying at home and watching your roommate play around with his laptop, perhaps it's time to check out Girl Talk, (aka Greg Gillis) who plays around with his laptop professionally, for crowds of people. Specializing in electronic mixing and mashup remixes, Girl Talk turns out a truly creative twist on your get-moving, dance-club favorites, intermixing Fabulous lyrics with Peter Gabriel melodies and twisting together Black Sabbath and Ludacris, just to name a few of his musical pairings. 8pm, Roseland Theater.
Artsy and psychedelic, let the women of Warpaint help you unwind from a hectic week or just enlighten your creative mind. This band has worked previously with Red Hot Chilli Peppers guitarist John Frusciante and has covered David Bowie, in addition to creating their own imagery-filled lyrics and melodies that are as beautiful to listen to as these women instrumentalists are to watch. 8pm, Wonder Ballroom.
Girls, grab your cars and money and check out Good Charlotte live. Oh and don't forget to bring those boyfriends of yours, too! This mainstream punk-rock group has won numerous MTV awards and gone to the top of music charts worldwide. Good Charlotte has performed with musicians ranging from Simple Plan to Justin Timberlake and their five released albums that range from angsty punk to pumped-up pop to heartfelt rockin' songs of love and hope. 8pm, Roseland Theater.
