Music

BOAT at Neumo's

It's dark, your hoodie's wet, the wind hates you, the things you love are closing at an alarming rate, and you haven't heard a song that's made you happy since August. What you need is a dose of BOAT. Loud, gorgeous, reverby guitars? Yes. A let's-just-have-a-fun-time attitude? Yes. A charming frontman? Yes. Songs about ice-cream trucks, haircuts, and punctuation? Yes, but not in an annoying way. I will be dancing. Don't you want to dance? Other bands on the bill: the awesome "Awesome" and the dangerous Harvey Danger. (Neumo's, 925 E Pike St, 709-9467. 8 pm, $12 adv, all ages.)

Unscrew the Crocodile Employees Benefit Show at Chop Suey

Without any notice, Crocodile Cafe owner Stephanie Dorgan closed the club a week before Christmas, leaving all her employees jobless. But the local music community has rallied to support them; former Croc booker Pete Greenberg (now booking at Chop Suey) has put together a benefit show with performances by members of Fleet Foxes, Peter Parker, the Pale Pacific, Siberian, Triumph of Lethargy Skinned Alive to Death, Pleasureboaters, J. Tillman, Damien Jurado, and David Bazan. (Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison St, 324-8000. 7 pm, $10, 21+.)

    Not to get too picayune, but that header should read "HARVEY DANGER", since, you know, they're the ones headlining. Otherwise, all the posters would have said, "BOAT, Second Annual Farewell Show, with Harvey Danger & "Awesome"" or some-such.

    Regardless, I'll still be there.
