Each year, SN&R presents the Jammies, which includes a series of Battle of the Bands shows, wherein teenaged musicians perform for a panel of credentialed judges, who then choose winners who’ll later perform again at the Crest Theatre in front of 900 fans. Complicated, right? Nah, not really: It’s about hearing young kids playing music live. Anyway, this Friday’s show features Dog Party, a sister duo of indie rockers; sixth and seventh grade four-piece Hotwire (pictured), from Davis; No Where But Up, from Roseville; and Coulds on Strings, a NorCal prog quintet. Show some love. 1050 20th Street,
