Shiny Toy Guns

The best show on tonight's docket is Shiny Toy Guns' stop at The Basement, 391 Neil Ave. The LA band isn't going to end up in the music section of my Facebook page or anything, but their super glossy electro-rock seems like it would be a nice diversion this evening, maybe even a pleasant surprise. The Guns will be joined by Delta Fiasco and Jonezetta. Tickets cost $15 and doors open at 7 p.m.

I can gave a heartier endorsement to It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, which airs at 8 tonight on ABC. Tonight's TV schedule also includes this gem: A new Oxygen reality series called Coolio's Rules. It stars you-know-who, and it's on at 10 p.m.
