Tonight Tonight in Music: Free Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks In-Store and Lake of Falcons

Real Emotional Trash, the new album by Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, is out tomorrow, and the man and his band will be performing tonight at Sonic Boom Records in Ballard at 11 pm.
The record will be available for sale immediately after the performance, so you can have it a few hours before the rest of the world.
Also tonight, Lake of Falcons and the Ironclads are at the Funhouse.
That’s a solid local line-up. Ironclads are reminiscent of Jawbreaker meets early Against Me! They have the poetic, melodic tendencies of the Bay Area trio on a couple songs, but there’s that gritty, folk punk edge that Against Me! boasted in their very early days when it was morphing from Tom Gabel’s singer/songwriter project into a full band. There’s also a punk rock swagger by way of whiskey—they mix it all up. Since it’d be worth it to head to the Funhouse for Lake of Falcons’ post-rock explosion, you might as well get there a little early for the Ironclads to check ‘em out. I’ve yet to see ‘em live—could be hit or miss. Let’s find out together.
