Shock city mavericks

The two 20-year-olds in Afrirampo don't mind advertising themselves like a cheap porn Web site ("2 young Japanese girls rock duo from Osaka! Naked rock! Naked soul! Red red strong red dress!"), and neither do they mind reducing your intestines to sushi with ginsu-like guitar-and-drums improvisational mayhem. Discovered by Acid Mother's Temple and befriended by Boredoms, they've just released Kore Ga Mayaku Da on infamous Jap-bondage fan John Zorn's Tzadik label. With Lightning Bolt + Big Bear Mass College of Art Gymnasium, 621 Huntington Ave, Boston 9 pm, all ages $5
