Your Friday-night buck gets stretched out well tonight. Royalty, Etc. Records is throwing a big old party to promote the release of not one, but three albums from their tight-as-hell roster, traversing the expanse of every style this strange and wonderful city has to offer. The show features the cuckoo electro-pop fun of ZibraZibra, the summertime piano pop of Seymore Saves the World, and the delightfully noisy indie rock of Middlepicker. Add to the mix the kitschy Tron-rock of Solid Gold and up-and-coming local stars the Wars of 1812, and it's your one-stop shop for local music for the evening. In addition to the fantastic and genre-crossing live music, don't forget to bring your mp3 player or flash drive—admission not only gets you a free disc from the label's highly eclectic group of artists, but also a complimentary digital download of any of the three new releases of the night. 18+.
