* As I've mentioned a time or two, I enjoy the shimmering sounds of local rock 'n' rollers Penicillin Baby. This Friday, March 29, the Babies will celebrate the release of their Jams: Volume III with a show (also featuring Elk Milk, Golden Spurs and Shy Guy) at Springwater [FB event page]. We'll have to wait until the end of the week to hear all the Jams jams, but you can see Penicillin Baby's largely NSFW, found-footage-featuring vid for the tune "All Dolled Up" above. Do you like pasties and butt cracks and lithe psychedelic grooves? You're in for a treat.
* Avant-indie songster Meadownoise will play this Thursday, March 28, at The Stone Fox along with fellow Cream faves Echo Group and Tower Defense. You'll be able to read my Critic's Pick on that in this week's forthcoming dead-tree edition of the Scene. But for now, you can watch frontman/brains-behind-operation Matt Glassmeyer and his collection of savvy instrumentalists playing "Yep, That's Right" from It's 4:00. The performance was recorded live to two-track tape by Matt Stager at Electric Kite Records, and filmed by Tower Defense's Mike Shepherd.
