Get out 

Music worth leaving the house to hear this week

The Supersuckers, Forty-Fives, Throw Rag
Cat's Cradle
Friday, May 23

Cocksure cult faves the Supersuckers revel in good time music, busting out punk-spirited party anthems that are a little bit country, a little bit rock 'n' roll. Atlanta's Forty-Fives have a near-perfect grasp on the fine synergy between '60s-inspired garage rock and undeniable pop hooks. Old-license-plates-as-washboards trash rockers Throw Rag open. For more information: 967-9053 or catscradle.com. --Chris Toenes

Snatches of Pink, Elevator Watch
Local 506
Friday, May 23

The Snatches are back! After a 7-year breather, seminal rock act Snatches of Pink are heading out on tour and gearing up for the release of a new album this fall. These hard-working rockers were part of the '90s magic that made the Triangle the rock 'n' roll Mecca it is today. Get out and give props. NYC's Bam Boo Kids and Charlotte's Elevator Action are also on the bill. For more information: 942-5506 or local506.com. --Deb Broderson

The Cherry Valence, Black Taj, The Dynamite Brothers
Cat's Cradle
Saturday, May 24

It's no coincidence that the standard song for Raleigh's The Cherry Valence is a no-holds-barred, rock-your-face-off melodic screamer dubbed "Sweat All Over You." After all, their shows--chock full of enough bawdy rock 'n' roll and ear-splitting madness to leave a few dozen Lower East Side homeboys green with envy and begging for mercy--are perspiration-inspired gobs of fun. Wear old clothes ... and deodorant. For more information: 967-9053 or catscradle.com. --Grayson Currin
