“Jamba Juice, Baja Fresh,” says Zack Claxon of Beth Israel on “Family,” introducing the song like a bored narrator cruising down a franchised stretch of I-35. The tune, one of the stranger numbers on the Dental Denial LP, creeps into a verse repeating a cold, latrophobic line: “I don’t need medicine, it won’t make up the rent.”

The debut LP of Zack Claxon and Ramsey Eddins, Beth Israel’s Dental Denial lives in this state of minimum wage, bored between shifts at the strip mall. Dark, funny and 27 minutes short, it’s like a visit to the corner store through the lens of a kaleidoscope stuck on the ‘bad trip’ filter. With Micro Missile Attack, Nag Champa. Free, 10pm, The Mix, 2423 N. St. Mary's, (210) 735-1313
