Scarlet Sails is the husband-and-wife duo of Moscow native and classically trained pianist Olya Fomina and drummer and Dresden Dolls vet Brian Viglione. Together, they make bombastic, honky-tonk piano rock, informed more by the blues and whiskey-drunk rock than the cabaret punk of the Dolls. $10-$13, 8pm, Limelight, 2718 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 735-7775, thelimelightsa.com
Nina Diaz’s bandmates in Girl in a Coma just dropped a bad motherfucker of a Chicana punk record, but don’t think that the GiaC front woman has been slacking — she’s sitting pretty on some solo material recorded at the audiophile’s heaven of Sonic Ranch and her live band, which performs at Limelight tonight, is as mean as they come.
