Oakland’s Slumberland Records boasts a 100-plus release catalog, which is a dutiful primer of all things punk and indie pop over the past 18 years, from 7-inches by Australia’s equally polished garage-pop six-piece Summer Cats (pictured) to even more bubble-gum angst, kid-friendly fare like the Pains of Being Pure at Heart. And so, Friday’s Record Club plus Slumberland party night will cover all your pop-rock bases, complete with sets by the former act, Massachusetts’ Pants Yell!, San Francisco’s Eux Autres and Sacto’s the English Singles. Five bands total, so don’t forget your noncontraband, psychostimulant of choice. 1400 Alhambra Boulevard, www.slumberlandrecords.com.
