Get out 

Music worth leaving the house to hear this week

The Weather with Dragstrip Syndicate, Bad Wizard and the Red Skulls
Local 506
Friday, Aug. 8, 10 p.m.

Raleigh's The Weather, a rousing '60s and '70s-inspired bunch of rock dudes, let it all hang out in a way that is always best experienced live. Ditto for Virginians Dragstrip, who are in the running alumni of 506 frequent bands. Also on this bill is Bad Wizard, a N.Y. group that often gets lumped in with stoner-rock-types, but has recently added a sexed-out Prince vibe to their heavy sound. Expect lots of jumpin'-around garage rock from the Red Skulls. Call 942-5506 for details. --Chris Toenes

Kid 606 with DJ/Rupture and Dwane Sodahberk
Cat's Cradle
Tuesday, Aug. 12, 9:30 p.m.

San Diego's Kid 606 (ne Miguel Depedro) is a hummingbird in the flock of 21st century electronic artists. With over 40 releases ranging from split 7"s to compilation appearances to full-lengths, the musician also known as Tigerboy has assaulted listeners with jagged shards of white noise, unrecognizable remixes (like an entire EP of Missy Elliott's "Get Yr Freak On" deconstructions), and seizure-like rhythms. This is the kind of show where you should find the best-sounding spot in the club and close your eyes. Opening are fellow Tigerbeat 6 (the label run by Depedro) terrorists DJ/Rupture and Dwayne Sodahberk. Call 967-9053 for details. --Finn Cohen

Eleni Mandell with Chip Robinson
Brewery
Tuesday, Aug. 12, 8:30 p.m.

Once hailed as a PJ Harvey disciple, Mandell has apparently gone country now, with a new album of twangy love songs. She does have the pipes for it, with a smoky tinge to her voice that separates her from many of the upper-register nouveau country vocalists. Raleigh's own country rock balladeer, Chip Robinson, formerly of the Backsliders, starts the show. Call 834-7018 for more information. --Chris Toenes
