The Acme Grub Cage Tacoma - Downtown. Blanco Bronco Record Release Party with Furry Buddies. Gritty City Sirens burlesque also in the house. 9 pm.

Bob's Java Jive Tacoma - Central. SEACATS, The Echo Echo Echoes, Hearts Are Thugs, Luxe Canyon. 8 pm. 45.

  • I can't be certain, but it seems likely that SEACATS may have the distinction of being the first band I've covered that were born out of a comedy web series. Formed by Kelso, Wash., by brothers Josh and Mike Davis, SEACATS make boisterous power-pop that recalls the guitar heroics of Fang Island and Surfer Blood, with a dash of the humorous self-deprecation of Weezer. While SEACATS describe themselves as "funny guyz," their songs don't make the mistake of drifting into a full-on comedy act. Despite their onstage antics and clearly tongue-in-cheek writing, these songs are by and large legit anthems that can be enjoyed by those people that tend to dismiss anything even close to comedy bands - even ones that were erroneously labeled as such, such as They Might Be Giants and Ween. But don't get me started on those people. - Rev. Adam McKinney

The New Frontier Lounge Tacoma - Dome District. Amber's Birthday Party, with Death By Stars, People Under The Sun, Oh Dear, Milk. 9 pm. NC.

  • The New Frontier Lounge is hosting a free birthday bash for some chick named Amber, who is now apparently old enough to join Betty White and the rest of the Golden Girls, at least according to the Facebook event page. While I don't know Amber (Happy Birthday anyway!), I do know the line-up looks smokin'. Death By Stars is one of four bands set to play, and one of my personal Tacoma faves. Number one reason they are on the fave list? They make me want to dance. I'm listening to them right now, and I'm having trouble typing because it's out of sync with their synth-y, catchy beats and I'd rather be bouncing with the rhythm, riding the groove, closing my eyes and getting into the vibe. But hey, there's work to do, so back to reality. But, come this weekend get ready to let loose and party with the best of 'em. - Nikki McCoy

The Spar Tacoma - Old Town. The One & Only Ramains. 8 pm.

Traditions Cafe and World Folk Art Olympia - Downtown. Los Flacos. All Ages. 8 pm. $10-$15.

Uncle Sam's American Bar & Grill Spanaway. Klasx. 9 pm.
