Today, 8 p.m., $13 in advance, $15 day of show

The Boardwalk in Orangevale

Make Dope your gateway drug to nu metal. Appealing in that greasy, grimy sort of way and worthy of any VampireFreaks.com profile nod, the Chicago-based band is set to release their latest album No Regrets on Tuesday. Plus, their 2007 songNothing For Me Herewas featured on Guitar Hero 3, an addiction in its own right.

 

Neurotunnel

Friday, 8 p.m., free

Delta of Venus

Home-grown band Neurotunnel have influences that reach much farther than their Davis roots, including strong influences from rock classics such as Pink Floyd, Tool and The Doors, to make for an electronic-tinged space rock.

 

Two Sheds, Buildings Breeding, Casual Fog

Friday, 9 p.m., $7, 21

Old Ironsides in Sacramento

It seems everyone’s been on edge lately, what with midterms, the weather and an annoying illness that’s been going around. Why not soothe the senses with a night of sweet, melodic tunes (and perhaps an equally soothing drink or two)? Bringing a modern neo-soul twist to classic folk stylings of Mazzy Star and Lucinda Williams, San Francisco-Sacramento duo Two Sheds should provide the right stuff.

 

Blue Turtle Seduction, Train Wreck Revival

Friday, 9 p.m., 21

The Blue Lamp in Sacramento

If the album review on page __ tells me anything, show-goers should be in for a night of lyrical lines more awkward than the pick-up lines they might get from other drunken patrons. Oh well.

 

Oatmeal, Deers!, Dumpling

Saturday, 7:30 p.m., free

Salmon Fish House

Readers, I apologize in advance for the bad pun: Take a dose of intricate math-rock arrangements with a sprinkle of pop-punk influences you’ve got yourself a recipe for Oatmeal, a foursome based out of the Bay Area.

 

Jason Webley, Garrett Pierce, Pete Bernhard

Saturday, 8 p.m., $8

Luigi’s Fungarden in Sacramento

I’m sure many have been wondering what Jason Webley has been up to lately. The Seattle-based artist used to be so prolific in our parts, charming audiences with his high energy, vodka bottle toting and accordion wielding self. He’ll make a return in this show, presented by Sacramento News and Review and Michael Leahy ofCool as Folkon KDVS 90.3 FM.

 

The Pack, Nifty, Supaficialz, Bugzy, Bueno, S.L.A

Saturday, 8 p.m., $20 in advance

The Boardwalk in Orangevale

Berkeley rappers The Pack know exactly how to play mind tricks on innocent listeners like myself. Back in 2006, they first assaulted the Top 40 radio rap airwaves with their sneaker anthem “Vans.Three years later, they’re doing the same hypnosis to my aural nerves with the chorus toHoes in this House.

 

Family, Miss Lonely Hearts

Saturday, 9 p.m., $5, 21

The Stag in Woodland

I’m all for literary references. Though I’m not positive that the locals behind Miss Lonely Hearts took their band name from Nathanael West’s 1933 novel, one thematic element has rubbed off: a penchant for the dark, as the group paves its way to theFolk Apocalypse.

 

Generifus, Temple Vibe, Oh Foot, Color of Love

Sunday, 7 p.m., donations accepted

Robot Rocket Residence

The weather may be cold and dreary outside, but the hosts of the Robot Rocket Residence promise a cozy indoor house show. Like coffee and K Records, anything to come out of Washington is bound to be good, and lucky for us, Sunday’s set includes two Seattle-based bands!

 

 

AT THE MOVIES

The Orphanage (El Orfanato)

Today, 8 p.m., free

194 Chemistry

I love horror flicks, so I’m always looking for things to up the ante in terms of the scares. El Orfanato seems to hit all the right notes: Creepy children, a dilapidated setting and the fact that it’s spoken in Spanish.

 

ART / GALLERY

Art Studio Lecture Series: Natalie Zimmerman and Michael Wilson

Today, 4:30 p.m., free

Technocultural Studies Building (formerly the Art Annex)

Multimedia artists Natalie Zimmerman and Michael Wilson teamed up to form Social Satisfaction Media, and the group’s film Silhouette City has been screened at festivals and universities worldwide.

 

Faces of Immigration

Friday, 7 p.m., donations accepted

The Yolo Interfaith Immigration Network presents this educational/artistic program, which will include photos from UC Davis alum and Experimental College instructor Francisco Dominguez.

 

THEATER / COMEDY

Beyond Belief

Friday and Saturday, 8 p.m. and Sunday at 7 p.m.

Birdstrike Theatre XI: Alfred Birdcock

Friday and Saturday, 7:30 p.m., $2 in advance, $3 at the door

1100 SocSci

The almighty Birdstrikers are combining two of my favorite things for their next showcase: Scary movies and lots of LOLs.
