Ball of Wax CD Release
(Sunset) Ball of Wax is a quarterly CD anthology that collects some of the goldurn prettiest music you’ve ever heard, from artists like Wesafari and Plan B. Volume 11 is a departure from the norm for BoW: On November 17, 2007, 35 musicians got together, split into 11 brand-new bands, then went off and wrote exactly one song each. Tonight, BoW stalwarts Webelos and the Luna Moth, among others, will be performing, and some of Volume 11’s featured supergroups might be coerced to climb onstage and perform their one-hit wonders, too. Six dollars gets you into the show and buys you a copy of the record, and if that wasn’t enough, the show is also a benefit for Hollow Earth Radio, the local online radio station that plays seemingly endless sets of gorgeous music interspersed with fragments of weird found sound recordings. The world simply was not built to withstand this much pretty. PAUL CONSTANT

My!Gay!Husband!, DJ Colby B, DJ Glitterpants
(Chop Suey) Vancouver, BC, DJ and producer My!Gay!Husband! is huge, both in the intimidating physical sense and in terms of accomplishment. His résumé includes scores of mashups, mixtapes, reedits, and remixes, and his schedule has him playing and throwing many of Vancouver’s best dance parties when he’s not out on tour. Also intimidating is the man’s reputation as a bully of a party starter. When he’s not mixing G. G. Allin into Trillville or dropping booty remixes of Feist, he’s screaming over the turntables, or pouring beer on your half-steppin’ shit. As raucous and loose as he is live, his productions and mixes are impeccably tight. ERIC GRANDY

3 Inches of Blood, Book of Black Earth, Toxic Holocaust, Plaster
(King Cobra) The newest club on Capitol Hill, King Cobra, celebrates its grand opening tonight in the space formerly occupied by Sugar. Tonight’s lineup is a hell of a good start for the club—3 Inches of Blood play epic, anthemic metal that’s so dramatic it could be considered ironic if they didn’t totally shred. They thrash around their long hair, their wailing guitar solos reaching up to the gods of metal. Book of Black Earth slay, too. They’re one of the heaviest bands in Seattle, with demonic vocals, blistering guitars, deadly video-game keyboards, and breakdowns that cause concussions. Ho-lee shit. King Cobra’s grand-opening weekend continues through Sunday with shows from Visqueen, the Emeralds, and Neutralboy. Visit kingcobraseattle.com for the full schedule. MEGAN SELING

Also tonight:

Hungry Pines at the Baltic Room
The Invisible Eyes at the Comet
Dropkick Murphys at Showbox SoDo

Anyone think he looks a whole lot like Pete from Chop Suey (formerly the Croc)?

Pete should get up on stage with him tonight and do a song from the Parent Trap.

Thanks and see you there!

Grandy you better not even think about stepping foot inside the Cobra because Guitar Doug and his gang are after you.

is Guitar Doug's gang kinda like that episode of Arrested Development where Tobias teaches "gang members" (ie the Hot Cops) about musical theater and then they take it to the street? because I couldn't take a guy named Guitar Doug having a gang any more serious than that. especially in Seattle.

anyway, it'd be funny if the Hot Cops jumped Eric.
