THURSDAY/19 

Music
SHARKS AND MINNOWS, BORN TO PLEASE, BOSS -- Sharks and Minnows play jangly and passionate rock as seen through Mould and Westerberg-tinted sunglasses. Born to Please, who jokingly refer to themselves as "the band your dog loves to fantasize about while making No. 2," aren't crappy at all. Their pleasingly explosive rock rumble is led by the whisper-to-a-scream vocals of Jeri Waynick. Boss present a no-gimmicks set of loud, aggressive "trench rock." The Earl (Smith)
