Austin, Texas, garage-punk quartet the STRANGE BOYS craft a primitive, lo-fi rock 'n' roll sound that's both dirty and addictive. At its most predictable moments, the group comes across like a Lone Star state little brother to the Black Lips. But when the Strange Boys are on, they're on. Their In the Red Records debut, The Strange Boys and Girls Club, unleashes a psychedelic post-punk jam that's part Texas psychedelia and part slow, Southern post-punk. Carnivores and the N.E.C. also perform. $8. 8:30 p.m. The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950. www.badearl.com.
