Ripe from tour, local garage-thrashers Fire Heads are back in town behind their new, self-titled LP. The album finds the four-piece's work getting tighter and more accessible than its 2014 debut Scroggz Manor (released under the band's previous name, Fire Retarded), putting the band's unhinged rawness at the forefront. Between a cleaner production style and just a hint of maturation, this sophomore release boasts a little more nuance both in songwriting and performance, but it's far from tame. Madison's Vanishing Kids will play here for the last time until spring, serving up glittery goth vibes and heavy, acidic, dream-doom soaked in psychedelia. Milwaukee's Calliope play classic, riff-heavy psychedelic rock matched with interstellar-overdriven synth-y spaciness. Madison's lovably noisy grunge outfit Dharma Dogs will be giving a one-time-only reunion performance here as well. Read more about that in our story about Dharma Dogs this week. —Emili Earhart
