In Today’s Pop Punk News, Teenage Bottlerocket is putting out a new album July 3! Rolling Stone says a new track “gets personal,” because, you know, TBR’s last three albums of songs about feelings and girls weren’t personal. Anyway, you can listen to ‘Done With Love’ here.

The headline there sums up pretty much all I (and, I suspect, the band) knows about this show, but hey: King Elephant kicks off an epic month-long tour with a show tonight at Zoo City Apparel. They play good punk music. You should check it out. 7 p.m., all ages, BYOB, $5 probably, rest of bands TBA.
ETA at 7 p.m.: Whoopass Girls are opening. Better get there soon!

Oh, hey, I did find the Indy write-up. Boys are playing the VFW tonight with Skinny Legs, I Hate Your Girlfriend and Silly Red Hat! 9 p.m., 21+, free.
From the esteemed Jason McMackin:
“Huseby’s vocals are imbued with the scratchy, thin and distorted tone that much of the garage genre favors, but his true voice still comes through. He delivers his lyrics with the confidence of early Jagger on “Electric Chair Blues,” but there’s also a subtle hiccup in his style—a hiccup that is almost country-like in the way he swallows some of his syllables. While “Blues” and “Now a Raid of Sea People” share a similar spooky sound, one that would sit well in a picnic scene of a David Lynch film, the band isn’t all blues and melancholia. “Parapets” has plenty of “la-duh-duh-dahs” and ends quickly like the other tracks, leaving the listener la-duh-duh-dahing all to himself.”
Go read the rest of it here and check out the show if you so please. Your faithful editor would, but it’s trivia night and Lacking Doctorates are due for a victorious comeback.

Tonight at the VFW the New Hijackers, solo Americana fellow PD Lear and good-for-nothins Buddy Jackson will entertain you! Free, 21+, 10 p.m.
Wednesday at the VFW, Boys kick off a tour with openers Skinny Legs, I Hate Your Girlfriend and Silly Red Hat. I presume this will be a lot of boys playing music with guitars. The Independent doesn’t post McMackin’s spotlight reviews online, and he does a better write-up than I do, so you’ll have to go to one of those red boxes on the street corner and get yourself a copy of the Indy and read it. Free, 21+, 10 p.m.
Thursday, King Elephant are supposed to be having a tour kickoff show that I know absolutely nothing about, so if somebody has details on that I’d be most obliged.

Via Weird Missoula‘s Facebook, Missoula’s self-proclaimed greatest drummer ever is maybe offering his services? sic throughout:
“I have been drumming singing in the rain and otherwise percussioning since the last ice age. Jesus Christ played lead flute on my 2458795213254 th album but of course I had to show him the ropes. The boy had talent, just not real talent like mine. I came here after musically destroying every top musician in every top genre (see? that word proves I’m a pro) in every country in the world.”
