Spokenest, City Mouse, Bill Jr. Jr.
Monday, July 25


LA punks duo Spokeneset toe the line between Jay Reatard's no-prisoners approach and Dinosaur Jr.'s stoned, stadium licks. It's a place filled with crunchy guitar tone, a lot of backbeat and a lot more denim. Bill Jr Jr provides a different approach, with lush, brushstoke folk from Vancouver. With City Mouse, Lemmings, Blankside. $5, 9pm, Hi-Tones, 621 E. Dewey. St
