New indie-dance night with FNX DJ and all-around good dood Paul Driscoll, which also includes (not in poster) "HIPSTER KARAOKE!" Mmmm, delicious . . . but couldn't that be every night at the Protokoll practice space? Oh, we keeed, we keed. (Here's the thing about "hipster karaoke," though: great concept, except that as soon as you call it "hipster karaoke," the actual hipsters decide to go sing '80s songs at Triple D's. C'est la vie.) We're guessing that they couldn't call it "indie rock karaoke" because someone already does that elsewhere. And couldn't do it with a live band because, y'know, they're playing with some other projects right now and they're soooo busy but they'd love to some other time. On the upside, the really cute girl from Freezepop is in charge, and if you're really lucky she'll wear her tennis outfit. Go join her for "new wave/hair metal/Britpop hits."

We'll also take this opportunity to co-sign the resurgence of Bill's Bar, the so-called "bastard child of Lansdowne Street." It's been in mothballs for the last few years, but back in the late '90s it was sorta like a Club Med for Allston rockers: close enough to Avalon to make it feel a teeny bit special, but dirty enough to feel mostly like home. Good sound, too. They're getting a late jump in booking January, so if you need a gig, holler at 'em . . .
