Backstage Bar & Grill Tacoma - Sixth Avenue. High Noon Horizon, From The Sea, Cadillac Radio, Halcion Halo. 8 pm. $5.

Capitol Theater Olympia - Downtown. Backstage Show, featuring Free Whiskey, Billy The Fridge, A.K.A., Night Fox, Lord Nock. All Ages. 8:30 pm. $5.

  • Volcano music scribe Nic Leonard is perhaps better known as Nicatine of Olympia-based rap outfit Free Whiskey. Or, we mean, he's the dude with the mustache. Now are you picturing him? Good. Anyway, Free Whiskey has been gaining steam for a while now, thanks, in no small part, to Nic's mustache and the track "Man's Best Friend (Mustache Song)."  In October Free Whiskey released a much anticipated EP, What Am I Going To Tell My Mom?, which raised as many questions as it answered. Tonight Free Whiskey returns to the stage with the group's first-ever all-ages headlining performance at the Capitol Theater. The always entertaining Billy The Fridge and Night Fox are also on the bill. Sure, it's a conflict of interests of sorts to promote the show of someone who writes for us, but it's also going to be dope - so we did what we had to do. Free Whiskey for all. - Weekly Volcano

The New Frontier Lounge Tacoma - Dome District. Brotherhood Of The Black Squirrel, James Coates. 9 pm.

  • Brotherhood of the Black Squirrel's second record, The Dust Bowl Ghosts, released last April, is described as "a trip through the dreams and nightmares of a down-on-his-luck circus comedian with a bum leg and child support payments." If that doesn't sound like a musical good time, I don't know what does. But tonight at The New Frontier Lounge it's likely to get even more real, with word on the street suggesting the five members that makes up this rodent-like brotherhood - guitarist and vocalist Patrick Baldwin, drummer Eric Thompson, bassist Jimmy Hughs, guitarist Stanford Mead and Wurlitzer wizard Andrew Childs - have been holed up recording a follow up to Dust Bowl Ghosts and are is ready to unleash the rock this weekend. Epic-ness seems certain to ensue. Brotherhood of the Black Squirrel will be joined on the bill by singer-songwriter and great-beard-grower James Coates and Ghostwriter. - Matt Driscoll

Uncle Sam's American Bar & Grill Spanaway. Versus The Nothing, BND Band. 9 pm.

  • Vancouver B.C.'s Versus The Nothing comes to town from the Great White North, intent on proving not everything from Canada is uber-lame. OK, OK ... so the band never claimed to be fighting for Canada's good name, but they are Canucks, and they do come to town this week looking to throttle hard rock fans with a blistering repertoire of power chords and wife-beater style undershirts. They're calling it "The Grind Stone Tour." Versus The Nothing released its most recent record, The Black Gloves EP, in July 2011, classifying the record as a "tease to our upcoming sophomore album," according to a press release. "We have been living the ups and downs of being a touring rock n roll band," the release continues. "We eat, drink and almost die doing what we love. Our upcoming release is laced with those life experiences on the road." Tonight, that life on the road brings Versus The Nothing to Uncle Sam's in Spanaway. They've finally arrived. - WV

Westbay House Olympia. Arctic Flowers, Milk Music, Hysterics, Crude Thoguht. 8 pm. $5.
