Friday night:

We were going to blog today. Really. We know it's late, so here's what we meant to tell you around 12 hours ago...

1. Holly Golightly is playing the Paradise right about now with Keys to the Streets of Fear. She's doing a duo thing you can listen to over here.

2. Our knowledge of '77 UK punks the Prefects? Nil, except that our dude Nick Blakey, who is never wrong about this shit, is creaming his pants. Prefects founder Robert Lloyd performs for the first time ever in Boston, leading his latest band the Nightengales, at the Abbey. In addition to the below, we recommend checking out their newish "Wot No Blog?" song at MySpace.

3. Fishwrap had to cut the following graf from David Day's column this week, so if you read it only in the paper, here's what you missed:

Boston's beloved underground techno club, 808, resurfaces this week at the Enormous Room, where they are bringing ALEX UNDER in for a live set. The appearance is worthy of worldwide attention as the Spanish Under is considered one of the finest live techno acts on the entire globe. Under's sound is quite minimal, but very melodic and playful "He makes cutting edge late night party music that is somewhat genre bending between house and techno," says promotion robot BLEEP (aka BRIAN MERZ of ROBOTLOVESONGS) on email, "but decidely different from the norm in any of those genres. "Hopefully friday will be one of those magic nights with lots of what I call 'disco moments,'" he says, "which seem to happen most often when you put an amazing artist and performer in a small intimate room packed with likeminded people." The appearance is being supported by local dub-sound designer TRITON (aka Eddie Odabachian) with an early set at 8pm, and DJs DAMIEN CULVALIER and ERIC MCLAUGHLIN from the 808 clan. "Both own Alex Under records and might play them out on a normal night," says Bleep. "Damien's sets are perfect for a party, and Eric sets defined the 808 sound." Get there early and stay late…

4. Speaking of David Day, you can catch him in a couple hours at this thing, which isn't quite as smashing as we thought -- the early plan appeared to be Paper all night, but the flyer has been ammended to note that the RISE resident house DJs are taking over around 1:30 -- and . . . well, if you haven't RSVP'd it's too late anyway. Last we heard, they had 1200 people sign up in advance:
