The Hussy + Crappy Dracula, The Points!, Zygoteens 

Madison’s The Hussy have been getting a lot of well-deserved attention for their take on the guitar/drummer combo, but they amp up the snotty vocals to gives their music a more Be Your Own Pet angle than White Stripes

The Bryan Cherry Band + On the Porch, Chris Otepka (Heligoats), Jeannie Mayotte @ Point East (1501 N. Jackson), 10 p.m.

The Bryan Cherry Band’s latest release, Alley Apple is a perfect testament to their funk prowess: smooth soul vocals from Cherry are surrounded by alternately gritty/fluid guitars and percussion from his band mates. Check out Fan-belt’s earlier coverage of the band, *here*

Big Fun 4Ever (record release) + Terrior Bute (CD release), Freight (last show), the Emptyheads @ Cactus Club (2496 S. Wentworth), 10 p.m.

Freight, Milwaukee’s all-out rock, audio-assault is calling it quits: the best ones always do, way too early. Join the Young Widows proteges for a night of furious guitars, mechanically-precise drum crashes and plenty of slightly deadpan and yell-y vocals. Burn off your energy after the rock show with a dance-party provided by Terrior Bute and Big Fun 4Ever: Milwaukee’s Vicious Pop Records poster kids.

Nobunny + The Yolks, the Gut Reactions, Rocktopus, the Get Drunk DJs @ Mad Planet (533 E. Center), 9 p.m.

He’s a man. He’s a bunny. Nobunny is nothing easy to describe, churning out karaoke-style garage rock muffle-shouted out of a bunny head. Nobunny’s album Love Visions has been sweeping the nation and beyond, as his ‘nobunny loves you!’ idealism continues to sweep coast to coast. See for yourself in the above video: even babies love Nobunny.
