Spider Bags, Lollipops 

When: Fri., Dec. 21, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

Spider Bags and The Lollipops make music suited for an end-of-the-world party such as this; both bands, after all, specialize in stuff that burns bright until it burns out, whether that means the Bags' bursts of unbridled guitars and fuck-you-I'm-drunk hooks or Lollipops' delirious little squiggles of melody and fuzz. Thing is, there's also a melancholy recognition of fallibility and mortality inherent to both aesthetics, whether that means Iggy Cosky apologizing for an almost overdose or Dan McGee shambling through ragged country blues at party's end. Tir na nOg promises a few more acts for this celebration of impending doom, but why bother? This lineup is perfect. —Grayson Currin
