FRIENDS 4EVA—With the bright, sweet "Tiny Hands," Hutch Harris' new band Forbidden Friends is a charmingly catchy counterpart to his usual Thermals gig. Forbidden Friends celebrate the single's release at tonight's show, for which some not-so-forbidden friends—Kathy Foster and Westin Glass, who you may know from his other band—will join Hutch. NL

EAT, DRINK, ROCK—The free shows every week at Bunk Bar are a fail-safe good time on a Tuesday, and tonight you can score the sunny, stoney harmonies of Old Light and the excellent, adventurous folk-rock of the Golden Bears. Throw in Bunk's delicious sandwiches and it's a feast for your ears and mouth. NL
