THE X-IMPOSSIBLES (Sat, 1 a.m., Star Bar) -- Anchored by the husband and wife team of Tim Lumley (vocals) and Heidi Lumley (guitar), the X-Impossibles are a refreshingly sane punk rock band who look back nostalgically on the '70s CBGB's scene and breathe fiery new life into that vintage sound. Their re-creation of the explosive Dolls/Stooges spirit is so inspiring, former New York Dolls guitarist Sylvain Sylvain sat in with them several times. Currently pounding the kit for the X-Imps is Morgan Engle, half of a rhythm section that also includes bassist Gary Yoxen, formerly of the hardcore crunchers Time Bomb '77. Handsome lead guitarist Shawn Christian rounds out the frantic five-piece. (Nicoll)

YOUNG ANTIQUES (Fri., 12 a.m., Star Bar) -- An interesting hybrid of new wave, punk and country, the Blake Rainey and band's blend of pure pop and '60s twang will keep the Antiques' store open late at the Star Bar. Playing a cool midnight set of older material and a sampling of songs from their upcoming album, Wardrobe for a Jet Weekend, the 'Tiques always have a contagiously good time. A sure highlight of the conference, the band have been known to throw in the odd cover, so be on your toes for an obscure nugget curve-ball. Die-hard fans may want to request the Replacements' "Talent Show" as an appropriate ode to the Conference. (Smith)
