As I explained in last week's paper, Long Beach's Crystal Antlers are among the most unique ass-kicking whirlwinds you'll find in this or any country. And they'll be at Cafe Bourbon Street, 2216 Summit St., at 9 tonight. Audacity opens. Tickets cost $8 advance, $10 at the door.
Also, folk-pop supergroup Works Progress Administration, featuring Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket), Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek), and Luke Bulla (Lyle Lovett, Jerry Douglas Band) is playing The Basement, 391 Neil Ave. After the 7 p.m. doors, Caravan of Thieves will kick off the night. That'll cost ya $15.
