Live & Local Preview: Pop Pistol

Tonight, I'll be headed out to Blue Bubble Ballroom to watch local funk-punkers Pop Pistol perform at the $3 Holler Show. They're scheduled to take the stage at 11 p.m.) Give their MySpace a listen (if that makes sense), the band has a versatile style incorporating elements of dance ("Angela Awake"), prog metal ("Calm Little Center") and can get surprisingly heavy at times. Recently I saw them tear into a live adaptation of Daft Punk's "Around the World," with singer/guitarist Alex Schael Frampton-ing the living shit out of a talk box.

The show may or may not be a CD release party, depending on whether the group has finished their new album in time. Members of the Vola Movement will dispaly works in a mobile art gallery and even create new art live onsite.

Also on the bill, anglacized reggae group รข?? i.e., more Clash than Jimmy Cliff (9 p.m.), local pop-rockers Montauk (10 p.m.), and the more or less indefinable Colleagues (midnight). DJ sets will open and close the night.

Doors open at 8 p.m. and, as the name might suggest, admission is $3 for anybody 21 or older. It's an all ages show, but you minors have to pay $5. You can holler all you want, but you still can't buy beer.
