    IF YOU GO:

    We ourselves have been known to make use of the services of Return to the Pit, especially when we need photos of anything metal-related. Judging by the photographic evidence, Aaron and Carina have consumed more metal than any people we know.

    It's been over a year since we checked in with the Soul Estate squad, but former Wiseguys/Hangmen3 disciple Man Terror has kept his game up in the studio, spitting out mixtapes every couple of months and building his movement from the Orchard Park projects outwards. Our backpacker friends are hereby warned that you will not find any emo shit on here, although you will find Chubby Chub drops, Disco D beats, and other types of events associated with non-indie rap music.

    IF YOU GO:

    • Tanya Donelly
      performing songs from This Hungry Life (out today!)
      12:30 pm at Newbury Comics/Government Center

    Tanya Donelly's got dirt on OTD, so let's air it out right now: she was present for a Super Bowl party (one that eventually ended in Patriots victory) where OTD got so stressed out that we ended up puking in a certain music editor's bathroom.

    We've grown accostomed to seeing Diddy "like you never seen him before" -- see: the infamous "Pee Diddy" clip -- but the world's most solipsistic rap mogul has topped even himself with DiddyTV, the custom YouTube channel that's been bringing us all-Diddy, all the time in the countdown to Press Play. A big sigh of relief, then, that the wait is over -- has been for a minute, actually; teenagers have been downloading it since last week -- and the album is in stores.

      Daniel Handler and Stephin Merritt
      performing songs from The Tragic Treasury: Songs inspired by A Series of Unfortunate Events
      7 pm, Natick High School [Google Map]

    While you're holding your breath for those two new Magnetic Fields albums, we can not discourage you enough from picking up a copy of the second CD by the Gothic Archies -- The Tragic Treasury, comprising Stephin Merritt's contruibutions in song to the audio book versions of Lemony Snickett's A Series of Unfortunate Events -- and beating a course for Natick High School, where tonight Merritt will be joined by Daniel Handler (on accordion!) for an exceedingly rare concert of those songs.

    MSTRKFT
    October 12 at Paper/Bill's Bar

    For those of you who thought Paper was faded permanently into early-2006, MSTRKRFT (or at least a recognizable fraction thereof) descended on Landsdowne Street to restore the night to its glory-days program of sell-out crowd and stellar atmosphere.

    Can you spot Tall Guy? Hint: PJ Harvey shirt, next to Deb (EXiMiOUS Productions).
    From Nick Zinner’s
    I Hope You Are All Happy Now

    The Big Disappointments are an important local band for two reasons. One, they kill live, with a gut-quaking locomotive rumble of psych-rock riffs and rockabilly-voodoo beats.
