...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead

With Your Favorite Enemies, Boyfrndz. $15, 8pm, The Korova, 107 E Martin St., (210) 226-5070.

Madonna Vs. Crystal Castles Night

The musical marriage of the ’80s pop queen Madonna with indie-approved electronica outfit Crystal Castles seems odd to say the least, but considering Crystal Castles’ use of Madonna’s image (complete with a gnarly black eye) as their logo, it suddenly makes more sense. In honor of the controversy and legal disputes over the logo, spinners JustAngel & Dantes Prayer will “celebrate” the two with a rockin’ dance party. 10pm, Web House, 320 Blanco Rd, (210) 531-0100 .


Wednesday, May 13

Since 1983, Chicago outfit Master has created virulent death metal. With Solstice, Dismemberment, Hate Storm Annihilation.  8pm, The Korova, 107 E Martin St., (210) 226-5070.
