Draped in graphic shirts and kaleidoscopic flannels, the rowdy rockers that comprise Carl Sagan's Skate Shoes epitomize the Sturm und Drang of contemporary noise rock. A storm of grating instrumentation, the Austin-based gang of three takes a note from their astrophysicist namesake by hopping across dimensional barriers. Transcending time and space, the shrewd rockers cast themselves as modern cowboys in the spirit of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid on their eponymous EP. Poised as urban outlaws, they anxiously patrol the broken sidewalks of a cityscape somewhere in the sinister Southwest. “Ain’t got nowhere to run to, ain’t go no home," snarls vocalist Steve Pike. "I’m a wanted man." Carl Sagan's Skate Shoes ascends into the nether with Yeesh, a dark and dissonant punk outfit from Chicago. 9pm, $3, Hi-Tones, 621 E. Dewey Pl.
