Did you hate your prom because the music sucked? Tired of dancing to ''Love Shack'' and ''Hey Ya''? (Who isn't?) If you live in Richmond, check out the Punk Rock Prom! It'll be on May 28 at Southside's Plaza Bowl. Your $2 admission benefits the Tinderbox, Richmond's newest DIY art space, opened by members of the Friendly Fire, and victims of the Oregon Hill fire. You can get tickets at Rumors. No matter how cute your date was, bad music sure kills an evening. Read More

Cute Band Alert

BY Lisa in Music

I got your new awesome album right here. Cryptacize hails from Oakland, CA (fans of Deerhoof will recognize guitarist Chris Cohen) and I've been jamming out to their new record, Mythomania, since it came out a couple weeks ago. Its melodies are addictive (like Nedelle Torrisi's vocals) and moments of endearing twee and weirdness shine through the slow-synth jams and catchy, rockin'-pop hooks. They're hittin' the road next week so click through to see if they're taking over your town. Photo by Denny Renshaw Tue. May 12 San Francisco, CA @ Bottom of the Hill Tue. Read More
