With Black Pussy, Sok and the Faggots, Ancient Warlocks, I Like Science and Zebrana Bastards, expect beer pounding, head banging dance offs and good ole fashion Tacoma fun. Black Pussy, with its fuzzy, psychedelic, weed/shoegazer ways, pairs nicely with the stoner rock licks of Ancient Warlocks and the hilarious punk antics of Sok and the Faggots - that sings Come on baby let me shit on your chest/you know girl my shit is the best in the song, "Shitty Titties." Not to mention, the undoubted awesomeness of the other two bands. Grab a cab, ride your bike or hitchhike your ass to this show. it's not to be missed. — Nikki McCoy

  • Tacoma garage rock band Shogun Barbie will unleash its debut EP, Medium, through the medium of pizza. Shogun Barbie, a rising star in the local scene, will be accompanied by fellow rockers The Trasholes - a young fuzz rock duo from Gig Harbor with strong influences from legendary punk groups such as Iggy and The Stooges and Black Flag - and Special Explosion, a contestant in 2011's battle of the bands Soundoff. These bands have a large set of music on their various websites to sample, and each one is well worth the listen. Entry is free and CDs will be handed out free of charge. Throughout the show Medi's will serve select Italian food and drinks, as well as keeping the bar open to those 21 and older, as the bands burn down the fine establishment with their unbearable levels of rock.

The New Frontier Lounge Tacoma - Dome District. Jeff Buckley Tribute Show & Holiday Toy Drive. 8 pm.

  • On a night in May, 1997, Jeff Buckley went nightswimming in the Wolf River; his body was found a week later. Three years prior to his untimely death, Buckley released Grace, a towering monument to a truly eccentric talent who had the potential to find legendary status divorced of the sad association of a man passing before his time. Grace's title track is a fierce and delicate anthem that sounds like nothing that came before or would come after (to say nothing of his famous and masterful cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah"). The task of covering the inimitable is one that will face Kurt Lindsay, RowHouse and Not From Brooklyn as they assemble to pay tribute to Buckley. This tribute night also doubles as a toy drive, so bring in a toy to get free admission. — Rev. Adam McKinney

Main Garden Chinese Restaurant Puyallup. Fall Fest. 8:30 pm.

The New Frontier Lounge Tacoma - Dome District. The Riffbrokers, Eric Olson, Kevin Brown and the Beloved Country. 8 pm.

  • For about 13 years now, the Riffbrokers have quietly been making some of the most sophisticated Southern-rock-tinged power pop around. Led by Nick Millward's distinctive vocals - reminiscent of storytellers like Elvis Costello and Craig Finn - and lyrics that manage to balance hook-y immediacy and blue-collar poetry, the Riffbrokers are virtually unmatched in these parts for humble, dignified substance and timeless riffs. In concert, the Riffbrokers perform with the kind of unshakeable confidence that comes not only from a prolific recording career, but a birth and development in the punk and country scenes of Boise and Seattle. These are workman musicians who never find time to rest on their laurels. That the band's song, such as "Please Forgive the Worst in Me," is a musical and lyrical match against a song such as "Bland, Predictable" - recorded a decade earlier - speaks to the continuing strength of the so-called "unsmashable" Riffbrokers. — Rev. Adam McKinney

The Deltan Club Tacoma - Downtown. The Knux, The Breaklites, Thunders of Wrath. Bar with ID. All Ages. 8 pm. $5.

Eastside Club Tavern Olympia - Downtown. Elbow Coulee, The Jeff Campbell Band, AKA & The Heart Hurt Goods. 9 pm. $3.

  • Thursday night AKA and the Heart Hurt Goods will play its first show at one of Olympia's favorite venues, the Eastside Club, where dreadlocks, mohawks and ponytails all bob and weave through the dance floor to some of the regions best bands. AKA and the Heart Hurt Goods join the club with their fresh style of performance hip-hop. With a new CD under their belt, (release party coming soon!) the group is riding high on a wave of energy, bringing messages of love, both lighthearted and deep-seeded. The band has good looking merchandise, too. "We're very excited about playing at the Eastside," says Mark Bowen, AKA. "There is a large constituent of people that only go to the Eastside because they love really good beers, so go there we must. It's one of the last remaining venues in town we haven't got to rock yet." — Nikki McCoy

The New Frontier Lounge Tacoma - Dome District. Word 3rd Thursday featuring Silent Lambs Project, Kept See, Un Tha Rhyme Hustla & Boombox Massacre, Cam the Viking, 6 Deep The Messenger, The Tough Breaks, plus eeetree the selector and hosted by Mr. Von and Rizeberg. All Ages. 9 pm.

  • People, this month's Word 3rd Thursday is packed with hip-hop goodness. Hosted by Mr. Von and Weekly Volcano's columnist Josh Rizeberg, the show at The New Frontier Lounge will be dope. The show is a regional showcase featuring Silent Lambs Project (Seattle), Kept See (Almighty Universal Zulu-Nation), Un Tha Rhyme Hustla & Boom-box Massacre (first performance), Cam the Viking (Gonzo Family), 6 Deep The Messenger, The Tough Breaks (Olympia) and music by eeetree the selector. Rizeberg gives props to all the performers, "It will be a well-rounded night of eclectic hip-hop." Rizeberg has special prop to Silent Lambs Project. "They are one of the most influential, conscious, politically-minded, hip-hoppers to ever come-out of Seattle," says Rizeberg. "Before Blue Scholars and Macklemore, it was Silent Lambs Project that got all the critical acclaim." Rizeberg also touches on 6 Deep, "He mixes poetry, live-music, and hip-hop into a stunningly deep performance." — NM

Jazzbones Tacoma - Sixth Ave. Roman Holiday, True Holland, Cadillac Radio. 9 pm. $10. 

  • As I've said for a long time, now, there is no other band in Tacoma that surpasses Roman Holiday in terms of big, national potential. The band already sounds like it has been vetted on adult contemporary radio for years. This is not to say it is a prepackaged band, but, rather, it's a completely successful accompaniment to huge stadium acts like Kings of Leon and Coldplay. Above all, Roman Holiday is the king of melodrama, experts in the act of building tension and then, in one fell swoop, releasing in gigantic hooks and choruses. The band fetishizes each triumphant rise and each melancholy fall. Being that Roman Holiday was born in the recording studio, it's sound is predictably polished and honed to near-perfection; the joy is seeing it replicate this polish live on stage. — Rev. Adam McKinney

Le Voyeur Café and Lounge Olympia - Downtown. Assassinators, Coniption Fits, Kill Shot. 9 pm. NC.

Northern Olympia - Downtown. Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard, Kimya Dawson, Stephen Steinbrink. All Ages. 8 pm.

  • Jeffrey Lewis and the Junkyard joins Kimya Dawson and Stephen Steinbrink for a performance at the Olympia All Ages Project venue Northern. It's a reunion, of sorts, for Lewis and Dawson. During New York's anti-folk scene in the early 200s, Lewis and Dawson crossed musical paths - often Lewis would perform and collaborate with Dawson and her Moldy Peaches project. The collaboration led to a K Records LP, The Bundles, and critical praise as an anti-folk supergroup of sorts. According to Lewis, he doesn't mind the anti-folk label. "I think it's a cool title. The fact that no one knows what it means, including me, makes it kind of mysterious and more interesting than saying that you're a singer/songwriter or that you play indie rock." After Peaches, former Evergreen State College student Dawson returned to Olympia to larger audiences - thanks to her Juno soundtrack -  and continue the musical collaboration path. Her most recent album, Thunder Thighs, features collaborations with Aesop Rock and pro-wrestler Daniel Bryan. — Timothy Grisham

The New Frontier Lounge Tacoma - Dome District. Barleywine Revue Album Release Party, with Cottonwood Cutups. 9 pm.

  • Barleywine Revue credits itself simply as a bluegrass band, but to hear it, the band somehow transforms that format into something more. Depending on whose lead vocals you get (in a very egalitarian move, the members trade off lead vocal duty), you'll either find yourself in a jumping jam like "Sunshine in Tacoma," a Fleet Foxes-esque reverie like "Burb on the Rocks" or the stately sway of "Ghost Woman Blues." You might even find yourself in the murky politics of "Aliens," which takes a (hopefully) tongue-in-cheek look at the issue of immigration and, specifically, those who obsess over ending it. Regardless of which Barleywine Revue you encounter, you're guaranteed to find flawless harmonies and impeccable musicianship. Barleywine Revue will celebrate the release of its new album with fellow bluegrass mavericks, the Cottonwood Cutups. — Rev. Adam McKinney

The Olympia Ballroom Olympia - Downtown. Hillstomp, The Oly Mountain Boys. All Ages. 9 pm. $5-$10.

  • Armed with washboards, spoons, buckets and banjos, slide and stomp, the junkbox blues duo Henry Christian, guitar, and John Johnson, buckets - bring an assault of high-energy backwoods punk. How the hell does a person yell harmonious twang without sounding a like drunken hillbilly? Maybe the duo do sound like drunken hillbillies. For this talented twosome, it's charming. Rumor has it Hillstomp will play new songs. "They're a lot of fun," says promoter Andy Geertson. "Hillstomp has missed their fans and are excited to get playing again." Local draw Oly Mountain Boys will perform its bluegrass flair. — Nikki McCoy

The Volcano visited Cheers West

Karaoke watchers are now on alert that Linsey Brooke is doing her thing at Cheers West in University Place Mondays and Tuesdays and at O'Malley's in Tacoma on Wednesday. The news prompted a quick swing by the University Place Tuesday for an update on the world of closet rock stars in the making. The feature that is sorta cool is that the song books are gone. They have been replaced by cell phone apps that people can use to select their songs from the clouds and get into the rotation without leaving their bar stools. Thanks Steve Jobs. An iPad is also available for self-proclaimed songsters to use if they still use their cells for calls and stuff. But the night brought more than whisky inspired-ballads of love and lose for the light 20s to 40s crowd of suburbanites. A gaggle of slackers racked some balls like the table owed them money. Drink specials were beer buckets for $8 to $10 and $2 tacos. Bottled beer, gut bomb tacos and drunk singing. A good night was had by all.
