TONIGHT: Entice Album Release Show at the Galaxy Theatre
The recent return of the Galaxy Theatre in Santa Ana means that there's another venue in Orange County--and a big one--to showcase local bands. One such showcase is tonight, and it may have a goofy name ("Planet Squared Presents: A.I.R. Music Fest," with "A.I.R." standing for "alternative indie rock"), but there are some nifty bands on the bill. Like OC's Entice, for whom tonight serves as the album release show for Let the Fire Come, their new record. Buy a ticket ($15), and you get a free digital download of the album--you can preview tracks "Who's Got Your Money" and "The Watchman" on their MySpace now.
Also on the lineup: LA's Tender Box, LA/OC/Long Beach band Plastick, LA/OC's Stereofix, Orange County's Workday Release and Huntington Beach-based/OC Weekly perennial favorites Venus Infers (who are opening up for Peter Murphy at the House of Blues on June 8, pretty sweet). Show starts at 8 p.m.
