Keeper of the Jams (July 5)

Tough to say what the kids are sweating more this summer: the keytars and homemade Elvis jumpsuits that've made Leslie and the LY's Boston's #1 kitsch-hop rap attraction (think, like, Gravy Train!!!! meets Har Mar on the Home Shopping Network circa 1984) or Leslie's Bedazzler-enhanced gem-sweater collection. Both are on display tonight. Donate your own sweater to her 25-foot sweater "museum" and she'll give it a name. Or just screw your jaw in place and watch her band kill it along with Roh Delikat, the Empties, and Melbourne's two-grrrls-and-a-boy trio Love of Diagrams, who will see your Raincoats and Erase Errata albums and raise you a Sleater-Kinney chorus and a Cut Copy remix. When you check your wallet at the end of the night and find your heart missing, don't say we didn't warn you. That's at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston 617.566.9014.

Fuck a ringtone: Leslie's taking singles straight to e-greetings.
