Milk Music @ Lisa’s Oak Street Lounge

Friday, July 27

Lisa’s Oak Street Lounge
1004 E. Oak St.
$5; 9 p.m.

Have you had enough of the DJs and ravers and the tweens today who don’t blow up their amps with some solid rock action? If it’s been too long since you’ve heard about a band from a place like Olympia, Wash., who sound like they’ve listened to a bunch of Dinosaur Jr. and Husker Du, and Northwestern trailblazers like the Wipers, then the under-used room in Lisa’s Oak Street Lounge is where you’ll want to be. The Germantown bar is playing host to Milk Music, with Lexington’s Cross (whose next album, Die Forever, will come soon from the Sophomore Lounge label), and local noisemakers Tropical Trash. “We’re too straight for hippies, too far-out for punk,” leader Alex Coxen told Pitchfork, so let that advise you. —Peter Berkowitz
