THE CAVE—Stop me if you've heard this before—jittery, jagged guitar pulses bouncing to the dance floor. Brooklyn trio The Jaguar Club aren't doing anything Interpol hasn't refined to a science, but if imitation were felony instead of flattery, rock would be a moldy corpse with crumbling warrants. Frontman Will Popadic offers a forlorn croon, Yoichiro Fujita's punchy bass is a fine foundation for the shimmering jangle of moody pop tracks like "This Year," and Jeremiah Joyce's nicely accented traps keep the rhythm percolating. You drop $5; they drop at 10 p.m. —Chris Parker

PARKER AND OTIS (FORMERLY FOWLER'S)—Keen on meeting some hip-shaking Gen X & Y folks who care? Traction, the Triangle's activist social network for left-leaning 20- and 30-year-olds, is throwing a salsa party called "Salsa Doble." Beginning with a salsa dance lesson at 7 p.m., the party officially starts at 8 p.m. with plenty of fresh-made salsa, hip wiggling and progressive talk to go around. Besides the salsa eating, Traction is celebrating the local tomato harvest by offering salsa-making workshops. "Tractivists" maintain interest in local issues, with the current focus on immigration, farmworkers' rights and local food. The cover is $10. For more info, visit or call 419-8311 ext. 28. —Megan Stein
