Who Really Needs a Heart, Anyway? makes its debut 8 p.m. June 18 at the band’s CD release party at Club Infinity. Along with BIJ, Pink Black and Victims of Sacco-Vanzetti will play. The show is all-ages with a bar for those people with IDs. And as a special treat for showing up early, the first 30 people at the club will receive free BIJ CDs. Visit … Alldaydrive, 21 Gun Salute, Hearts Fall and Wrong Direction—all very different sounding bands—play the first all-local all-ages show at New Oasis, 7 p.m. June 12. The young members of these bands are hoping the New Oasis can become an Ark-a’ik-like venue offering more affordable shows than Ark-a’ik typically did when it was open. The show is $5 advance, $7 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at Recycled Records or through any of the bands. Visit,,,
