The Outer Space hosts an evening of pop punk miscellany tonight at 7 p.m., when Minneapolis' Scrunchies roll into town ($5). Joining them will be Eureka's Clean Girl & the Dirty Dishes — featuring members of Monster Women — and Arcata's gentle act Daniel.
Over at the Miniplex, ex-Ariel Pink and Deerhoof-ster Chris Cohen brings his lush pop to the stage at 9 p.m in support of his forthcoming Captured Tracks album, As If Apart. Joining him will be Shannon Lay who brings her folk splendor on a return trip to Arcata after opening for Ezra Furman last month. Also on the bill is Meg Duffy's Los Angeles-based lo-fi act Hand Habits. Guarantee a place in sonic heaven for $10.
