Get yer rock on
Tonight, the Alibi hosts Seattle stoner rockers Ancient Warlocks
. Do you like seductive, powerful riffs? Do you enjoy feeling music reverberate through your body? Do you ever experience a twinge of nostalgia for those hot desert nights making out in the back of your '67 Mustang while the Kyuss cassette spun out in the front? Or maybe you're just a guy who likes to rock? Then you will enjoy Ancient Warlocks. The usual $5 cover, 11 p.m. start time and legal drinking-age folk only applies.
DJs Pressure Anya
celebrate the one year anniversary of their monthly party "Fuego" at the Pearl Lounge. The night features a mix of tropical sounds including Latino beats, Jamaican riddims and modern bass music. For this celebration, they're bringing up DJ Sep
from San Francisco's Dub Mission, which was voted Bay Area's Best Reggae Club by SF Bay Guardian readers. Sep started out on Bay Area radio at college radio station KUSF and later at Berkeley's public radio station, KPFA. She's the co-compiler (with producer Shockman) of Babylon Is Ours: The USA in Dub, a collection of all-exclusive American dub tracks and has a bunch of other notable credits to her name. It's a free, 21-and-over dance party at 10 p.m.
The much-adored Shook Twins
perform at Humboldt Brews in support of their forthcoming album, What We Do
, produced by Grammy Award-nominated producer Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Fleet Foxes). Best known for reshaping the American roots genre through a distinctive indie-folk songcraft — lush harmonies, foot-stomping gospel and unexpected grooviness — the music of Shook Twins seeks to balance a delicate vulnerability with scorching positivity. 9 p.m., $15.
Speaking of scorching, Circus of the Elements
presents the third annual "Fire Fusion 420" — oh yeah, Sunday is 4/20 — at the Mateel Community Center. Featuring three stages of live music, artists and performances with MC John McClurg
, this all-day includes The Nadis Warriors
, Rooster McClintock

and more, plus a slew of burlesque, aerial and belly dancing performers, and — true to the name — a fire show by Circus of the Elements. Tickets for the 1 p.m. event are $25 pre-sale, $35 at the gate. You need to have an ID proving you are at least 18 years of age.
