There's punk rock royalty rolling through our modest streets as hardcore innovators MDC hits the Outer Space tonight for a triumphant return to the 707 at 6:30 p.m. ($15, $12 advance). In tow from Saitama, Japan, will be punk/thrash crossover act FLiPOUT A.A. with local support by Unholy Orifice, Dead Drift and the inimitable SLOP.
Over at the Alibi, a rare Sunday show is going down. What's the occasion? Why, one-man band and hillbilly chicken-pickin' spaceman par excellence Bob Log III is back in town with his radical rhinestone antics and interstellar lonesome star-man sound. Opening up the night is Austin, Texas' similarly weird and talented man-solo Ghostwriter at 9 p.m. ($10).
