On November 29 at Club 21, Boom! played their first local show in a good while, and tonight is your chance for sloppy seconds. Not that they've been idle. The punk-garage trio dropped a whole bunch of terrific new songs in the past few months—the juicy new Boom! Singles compilation tape just came out on Slop Bop Records, and the A-side of their recent 7-inch on Hovercraft, "High You Can't Buy," could be Boom!'s finest moment yet. It's a melodic piece of sticky fuzz that sounds gigantic at full blast, which is the required listening volume. For the full Boom! experience, though, get to this show and put your trembling earholes as close as possible to the source. Tonight's pre-Christmas throwdown will be the equivalent of a Red Ryder BB gun: You'll probably shoot something out, but that's not gonna make you want it any less. NED LANNAMANN
