* Speaking of WOTT, they're co-hosting tonight's 8 off 8th at Mercy Lounge with My Tyger. Bands! Eliza the Arrow, The Kingston Springs, Bad Cop, Majestico, My Tyger, The Zut Alors, De Novo Dahl and Heartbeater. At 9 p.m. and free.
* The Onion AV Club takes on The Shazam: "Frontman Hans Rotenberry bellows giddily through songs about being 'not fucked-up enough,' and about attending a disco at the fairgrounds, and about how there's always time for a piece of pie; throughout all this, he sounds like a man free from any of the angst and self-doubt that's the enemy of fun in rock 'n' roll." (Or take Edd Hurt's word for it.)
