Condominium + Herds, Truthdealer @ Franks Power Plant (2800 S. Kinnickinnic), 10 p.m.

Herds will rip faces off with its frenzy of hardcore and punk guitars and intense drumming whether the audience wants them to or not: there’s just no other way. The four-piece are an intense whirlwind of sound that will appeal to fans of everything musically brutal from Get Rad to Speedfreaks to Northless

Cougar Den + Father Phoenix, Cloud Mouth, Red Knife Lottery @ Y-Not III (1854 E. Kenilworth), 10 p.m.

Cougar Den is getting a lot of well-deserved respect for their keepondrifter release of last year: the Milwaukee hardcore scene is getting thicker than thieves, but Cougar Den is navigating the waters just fine, going strong on a standard three-person set-up but cranking it up with an edge of energy and enthusiasm and a strong basement following, setting them ahead of the rest by creating a genuine appeal with their hardworking ethos.

DJs K_Digital + Jayx, Crisgo Disco, Geewiz & Speed Tek @ Moct (240 E. Pittsburgh), 9 p.m.

Hit the dancefloor this weekend with DJ (Kory) K_Digital as the regular Moct DJ shakes the speakers with skill and ease. Joining him is Jayx, as much of a talent on the club turntables as a talent on the mic, manning his own electronic dance music show (“Streamline”) on WMSE for the past twelve years.

Wizard of Cause + Jonathan Burks, Spransy & Kolb @ Mad Planet (533 E. Center), 10 p.m.

J. Todd truly is a wizard of sorts, first conjuring up dance-pop bliss with Leo Minor and hip hop rhythms of the former Def Harmonic. Mr. Todd is back with his newest musical cause, aptly entitled Wizard of Cause, sure to get feet moving. To create a truly magical evening, the pure pop of Spransy & Kolb will be paired along with the honky tonk drunk punk of Jonathan Burks.
