Appetite for Orange.

8 p.m., Vino's. $7.

Folks long on the scene might be a little quick to dismiss the local youth movement as a glut of emo kiddie-punk. Cirque des O'Boogie, AKA the 2008 Dance Punk Prom, celebrates young musicians doing diverse things. Jack to the Future is a local one-man band who uses a computer, a synthesizer, two keyboards and “glowsticks, fog machines, real monsters, lights” and other elements he's keeping close to the vest. From that hotbed of punk experimentation, Blytheville (God love the Internet), Goodnight Panda specializes in synth-heavy funk rock. Appetite for Orange plays shambolic garage punk. Now that he's on track to become a local heavyweight, rapper Max Farrell is being billed as Maxx the Great. No quibbles here. If he keeps churning out infectious jams like his new track “Like So,” he'll earn it and then some.
