Weak Sisters + Climax Denial + Blessed Sacrifist + Hatehearted @ Borg Ward Collective (823 W. National Ave.), 7 p.m.
It’s an evening of noise, glorious noise! An extravaganza of knob-turning distortion, wicked feedback and ass-kicking — a delightful showcase of aggro-gazer headlined by Fort Collins, Colo. Weak Sisters (shown above.) Milwaukee noise-meister Climax Denial is scheduled for a set, also Blessed Sacrifist, whose layers and loops of cymbal crashes embody an awesome lesson in the possibilities that can happen when you stack bizarre sonic frequencies.
Plexi 3 (CD Release) + The Hussy + Modern Convenience @ Linneman’s (1001 E. Locust St.), 9:30 p.m.
Pop-punk outfit Plexi-3 returned home late last month from a three-week tour. This homecoming show doubles as the band’s CD release party in celebration of their debut Tides of Change. From what’s streaming on their MySpace page, it got a Ronnettes vs. Sex Pistols kind of vibe too it. Quite delicious. We told y’all how much we like the garage rock duo The Hussy a little while back; they’re adding the salt to this sweet evening of punky pop.
Saturday, June 6
Chalice in the Palace @ Mad Planet, (533 E. Center St.) 9 p.m.
Chalice in the Palace is a regularly-occurring reggae record spin happens at clubs all over town that should have got some love from us long ago; it’s one of the coolest spins in the city. Saturday’s event is a slight change-up, featuring DJ Avets (vintage funk/hip-hop) DJ Eltronix (dark dub) and DJ Marcus Garvey, aka Marcus Doucette from RadioMilwaukee.
