I hate to bust out the "h" word, but a pretty hip Brooklyn (god, my mom always used the word hip to denote someone who smoked weed, but I can't think of how else to say it) band is playing at the Blue Lamp tonight, they're called Blood On the Wall. I saw them open for the Black Dice before, they're a good, fun party-style band. They're playing with Pets and the Nurses.
Also, local renaissance eccentric Zak Nelson is having at art opening at Brick Brack (2114 p st.) and then playing a show at the Witchdome. That's my plan for the night, but I may try to hop over to Blood On The Wall, too.
Tomorrow, Rock the Light and Iguanadon at the Distillery.
Sunday, the Ancient Sons are playing at Club Pow, but looks like it's not an early show. Starts at nine.
