Frankenstein noise or Dracula pop?
Remember when Dad told you to turn that gosh-darned noise down or face the wrath of the sledgehammers? Typically, he was all bent out of shape over some limp-linguica rock band you’d been blasting. But what if you’d had access to some real brain-destroying yow-yow? If you’re still in the market for that, you can find some at the Capitol Garage, 1427 L Street, this Friday, January 2, when Omnibus act Gift of Goats, Japanese comic-noise combo Peelander-Z, local art-damage fave Uberkunst and Hotel Pistol take the stage. It’s all-ages; call the club for time and cover. And if you aren’t in the mood for noise, you might catch Ghost of the Robot, the Los Angeles-based pop-music band featuring James Marsters of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame, along with a few former locals, at the Crest Theatre on Saturday, January 3. The show starts at 8 p.m., tickets are $15 at the door, and it’s drummer Aaron Anderson’s final show before he embarks on his Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints mission.
