The Vaz

Local 506--Turn the little lightning bolt arrow on the way-back machine to the '90s aggro-punk scene. Among the contorted faces of bile-spewing guitarists and heavy-lifting rhythm sections like those in peers Helmet, Surgery and even The Melvins, Hammerhead loudly garnered underground fame. (Triangle bands like Cobra Kahn and Panzer paid attention.) The Vaz rose from Hammerhead's ashes, now banging away as lone survivors of the Amphetamine Reptile era for nearly another decade. Get loud at 10 p.m. for $7.

Be Here to Love Me

Galaxy Cinema--Townes van Zandt suffered and suffered during his lifetime, and will most likely join the likes of Vincent van Gogh and Emily Dickinson in achieving his greatest comfort in posthumous fame. Margaret Brown's riveting Be Here to Love Me is an important testimonial to the life and work of the composer of "Pancho and Lefty," "Tecumseh Valley" and "Waiting Around to Die." It finally opens locally.
--David Fellerath
