BEACH BUNNIES GET BENT: DUM DUM GIRLS (DJ SET), GUANTANAMO BAYWATCH, ORCA TEAM, THE RESERVATIONS
(Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison) Tired of landlocked living? Slip on your best Jams and flipflops and cruise over to Holocene for the first annual Beach Bunnies Get Bent: A Surf Night. Vintage surf films, a rare DJ set from those beach honeys in Dum Dum Girls, plus enough live music to make you shred the gnarl. (I have no idea what that means, but I think it's a good thing.)

NEUTRAL UKE HOTEL, ME AND UKE AND EVERYONE WE KNOW
(Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) Jeff Mangum, wherever you are hiding (a cave on Avery Island?), I hope you're paying attention. This is what happens when our obsession with Neutral Milk Hotel goes unattended for a dozen years: all-ukulele cover bands. Since there isn't much to say about Neutral Uke Hotel that you can't guess from their name, here are our lazy suggestions for other instrument-specific cover bands: Flootie & the Blowfish (an all-flute tribute to Hootie & the Blowfish), Karpsichord (an all-harpsichord tribute to Karp), Oboe Ono (an all-oboe tribute to the woman who broke up the Beatles), and Céline AccorDion (ugh, never mind).
