Band Name Back Together Again at Bookspace April 21

Power punk trio Band Name have been on a month and a half long hiatus while Jeremy Jams went on a travel expedition of Finland.

But before then, the group will be headlining a Cloud Entertainment show at Bookspace tonight that also features two tripped out indie punk bands from Michigan, Deadbeat Beat and Secret Twins. Rounding out the lineup will be singer-songwriter Mike Bell and his band the Movies.

U.S Girls Returns at Empty Space April 20

U.S. Girls (a.k.a. Megan Remy) has been keeping relatively quiet recently, but expect all that to change when she takes the stage this evening. Tonight she’ll be building her eerily mesmerizing sonic collages right before our eyes at Empty Space (formerly Germ Books). Expect plenty of new songs! She’ll be joined by Horsebladder, the perfect fitting opener from 50 Foot Women’s Elaine Kahn, and local fuzz rockers Party Photographers, who are always a welcomed addition to a bill. Who knows the next time U.S. Girls will be playing a local show, so you better catch her while you can.
