Death Valley Murder Squad

METAL: I have a big ol' soft spot for hilarious band names. For my money, Death Valley Murder Squad is just about the funniest name possible for a heavy metal band. And I'm willing to bet that DVMS knows it, too. Check out this quick sample line from their song, "Sons of Thunder": "Helter Skelter, demon hunter, six feet under." The whole song is like that. Seriously! It's sort of like "It's the End of the World as We Know It," except it name checks just about every heavy metal cliché ever imagined in quick succession. It's kind of awesome. Lay funny lyrics over a pummeling riff and you've got it made in the Satan-worshipping shade. I'm talking devil horns, bro. Ridiculous devil horns.With Kids on Fire, A Sic End, and Nothing You'd Like, Wednesday, June 30, 9 p.m., no cover, Hell's Kitchen, 928 Pacific Ave., Tacoma, 253.759.6003

POP: Camp Out is a two-girl outfit, made up of Maddy Hanks and Jackie Law. Their music, full and harmonic, errs on the side of uber-sunny California pop. Utilizing looping pedals, keyboards and drum machines, Hanks and Law (sounds like a buddy-cop duo) flush out their sound and become much more than a guitar-and-drum band. Wednesday, June 30, 10 p.m., no cover, Le Voyeur, 404 Fourth Ave. E,, Olympia, 360.943.5710
