Mon., Feb. 11, Retox
The Press Club, 8:30 p.m., $6
Between running the Three One G record label in San Diego—with notable releases such as the Blood Brothers' second album March on Electric Children—and spending time as bassist and vocalist for the Locust, Justin Pearson still finds time for new projects. His most recent is singing for the band Retox. The group consists of four musicians from Southern California and plays an amalgam of post-punk, hardcore and, at times, thrash. Retox merges elements of sci-fi, punk and aggressive fast-paced percussion to create frenzied quick arrangements. Joining Retox are punk groups Rat Damage and So Stressed, plus the loud power-violence duo Tom Hanks. 2030 P Street, www.facebook.com/retoxrules.
