THE WEEKLY VOLCANO SUGGESTS >>>

Cedarwood Dome Milton. Green Jelly Tour, with Locally Disowned, Lost Cause, Sickamore, Super Geek League, The Fabulous Miss Wendy. 21+. 8 pm.

Harbor Greens/Forza Wine Bar Gig Harbor. Chicken Joe. 21+. 7 pm. NC.

Hell's Kitchen Tacoma - Downtown. Wide Eye Panic, In Lunar Blue, Rishloo, Blame It On The Girl. 21+. 9 pm. $5.

Jazzbones Tacoma - Sixth Avenue. The Return Of Pretty Boy Sean's Showcase, featuring Jobe Himself, The Black Sails, Monique Lanier. 21+. 8 pm. $6.

  • Someone apparently thought it'd be a good idea to have Sean "my voice is effeminate but I'm really a tiptoeing communist" Culver back to Jazzbones, his former place of employment. As many will recall, Culver booked the Boneyard for years, specializing in comedy, his indie showcase nights and, most prominently disturbing facial hair. Friday "Pretty Boy Sean's Showcase" returns to Jazzbones with music from Jobe Himself, Black Sails and Monique Lanier. This will be a homecoming of sorts, with references to Hugo Chavez and midget porn for those within eavesdropping distance of Culver. – Weekly Volcano

  • When you think of art rock, bands like King Crimson and Genesis or Sonic Youth and latter-day Talk Talk tend to come to mind. The common thread that runs through most of these bands is a deadly seriousness. It's, you know, "art." It needs to be serious. And it needs to be taxing and difficult and all those other words we use to describe albums that just aren't any fun to listen to. Enter Japanther, an art rock band with punk leanings that's actually fun. The band (a duo) got their start in college, at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. They're a couple of art students who formed a band just to form a band. Before they knew it, they were opening up for bands like the Blood Brothers. On record, Japanther is lo-fi and noisy, and live it's not much different. Live, the duo play bass and drums, filling out the rest with their backing track on cassette. The rest I'll let you discover on Friday - a free, all-ages show that may be one of this year's best. - Rev. Adam McKinney

The Swiss Tacoma - Downtown. Spazmatics. 21+. 9 pm. $8.

Uncle Sam's American Bar & Grill Spanaway. Metal Effen Friday Gargoyles Benefit, with 5 local rock bands. 21+. 7 pm. $3-$5.
