Eight Gigs: Lushes

Thur., Oct. 22, 8 p.m., Cafe Colonial, $5

Brooklyn post-punk outfit Lushes arrives at the Cafe Colonial fresh off the release of its sophomore effort, Service Industry. While bands on the Felte label traditionally fit within the Le Twist Tuesday vibe, Lushes bring a harsher 'tude apropos of the off-grid debasement of fringe punk shows. Assisting with the menacing sonics will be locals Grave Lake, comprised of ex-Darling Chemicalia dudes, and Xoblique. While Darling Chemicalia will be sorely missed, the visceral dirge bubbling from Grave Lake's live set suggests a renewed vigor for jet-fueled punk reminiscent of Velvet Underground and Sonic Youth. 3520 Stockton Boulevard, www.facebook.com/events/
