Download “Paint Your Lips” by Wake Up Lucid

"Paint Your Lips" is the new single from local trio Wake Up Lucid off their recent EP, Sugar. What starts with a four count, ends with sex-drenched vocals, high octane guitar, and a glorious drum solo outro. The band holds true to their blend 70's blues driven British rock and balls-to-the-wall garage lo-fi across all five new tracks, while title track "Sugar" gets my nod as another song to pay special attention to.

If you braved the cold and the rain, you may have seen them a few nights ago at Origami Vinyl, but if you stayed warm at home then have no fear - Wake Up Lucid is packing April with a residency at the Silverlake Lounge.

AMP It Up! East Coast All-ages Music Summit at The Rotunda Feb. 26

Get ready for a one of a kind forum on all things DIY and all ages. AMP It Up! East Coast All Ages Music Summit is a rare panel, training, and networking session designed for staff, volunteers, allies, and fans of all-ages music venues and youth music organizations, it’s happening at The Rotunda this evening. In honor of the release of the book In Every Town: An All-ages Music Manualfesto, this forum looks to bring likeminded peers together to figure out how they can strengthen young people’s access to the tools of participatory cultural production. So although they’re in for a busy weekend of fests, there’s a good chance that you might see some peeps from the likes of Danger Danger Gallery and The Ox in attendance, as well as some familiar musicians, especially since Ian MacKaye of Fugazi/Minor Threat/Dischord Records will be on hand as a keynote speaker. An event of this nature naturally wouldn’t be complete without some rockin’ live music, and one of the bands providing it will be Slutever who will be doing double duty today because they’ll also be hitting up 2 Piece Fest 4 at The Ox. The grrrls have been kicking ass and puffing bowls all over the place, and will be releasing their first vinyl Pretend to be Nice on Bantic Media (which can be pre-order with a limited edition screen printed stencil and poster here). So they’re sure to bring the shred before they get ready for SXSW! They’ll also be joined by SGNLS who have been hard at work on a full length LP, and our getting ready to tour with Drums Like Machine Guns in March. The Rotunda, 4014 Walnut St., 5pm - 11pm, $5 - $15, All Ages - Bill McThrill

Do You Need the Service? & Univox at JB’s Feb. 26

Even though Philly's Do You Need the Service? has been performing in these parts for three years now, they're no strangers to the local music scene - bassist Justin Hallman has tracked time in Pros from Dover and Bitch Slicer, and saxist Mike Tranmontana jammed in Black Landlord and Afterdinner Mints. The four-piece instrumental rock outfit, which also includes keyboardist Tim Day and drummer Mark Sconyers, is also no stranger to attention. They received positive reviews for their latest album, I Hurl Myself Towards Glory, released in July, were mentioned in Metro and Philadelphia Weekly, and even landed a live gig on NBC 10. You can catch their fusion of rock, funk, jazz and new-wave tonight at Johnny Brenda's, where they'll play with local staples Univox, whose penchant for wickedly fierce, raucous noise makes them Deli favorites, and Brooklyn five-piece The Better Letters. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Annamarya Scaccia

Calling all bands and fans: Streight Angular Want You For Their Music Video "Everyone is Syncopated"!

Streight Angular

Streight Angular is filming their music video for the single "Everyone Is Syncopated" Saturday, February 26 at the Out of the Blue Gallery in Cambridge.

It's a collaborative art project that they want everyone to participate in by bringing personal devices that record video (cell phones, digital cameras, etc) to film it themselves and that footage will be used as part of the video. They want to do special effects with it all, so if you are going to bring a camera, the band asks that you RSVP here.

They also ask that you bring props like stupid stuffed animals and blow up dolls and toy instruments or whatever you have lying around that's cool and weird. That, also includes posters of N'Sync, they want it to be that ridiculous.

They also want to get as many local Boston bands in the video as possible. All participants will get credit in the credits reel as extras and camera people (if you help out with the recording).

The shoot begins at noon, but they ask that everyone get there for 11:30.
