We assume you know about tonight's show at Rotture featuring Chain and the Gang, the new project from Ian Svenonius, as well as the Hive Dwellers, which includes Calvin Johnson, plus openers Wallpaper, who play super-fun garage-slop teenybop. There's Tonry's article about Svenonius in this week's paper—it's for the readin' here.

But tonight's show is going to be very special. Instead of taking place upstairs at Rotture, it'll occur around the block in the parking lot outside the door to Branx, at 320 2nd. Outdoor show? Yes please. What's more, it's all ages. And there's more, as this excerpt from the press release will tell you:

Please come out and have some fun outside and enjoy the beautiful weather in our back parking lot in front of Branx. We'll have the BBQ grillin’, we'll have the Branx bar open to serve some drinks (for the 21+). Three great bands and a special set by local favorite DJ Beyonda. Guaranteed to be a great time. Let’s kick off the summer right!
I... am... so... there. Can't this thing start right now?

Branx (outside), 320 2nd, 8 pm, $10, all ages
