Listening Post

This Saturday, Jan. 16, the Side Door/Rocket Bar block on Locust will host An Emotional Wreck II, a minifestival featuring guitar bands from all over the Midwest banging out jerky rhythms, highlighting the gloriously self-sufficient community: One night, two clubs side by side, one cover. At the Side Door: Not Waving but Drowning, Universal Life and Accident, Neutrino, Traluma, Pave the Rocket. Over at the Rocket Bar: Sterling, Sweep the Leg Johnny, Five Deadly Venoms, Lustre King, 90 Day Men. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. An $8 flat cover gets you in both places, all night.

Tuesday, Jan. 19, at the Delmar Restaurant and Lounge, DJ Doug Morgan will debut "Monkey Time," his new spin, which features rare soul and deep groove music for the entirety of the evening. This installment is a benefit for KDHX; the station is trying desperately to raise money for a new transmitter. (RR)
