PINK SPIDERS
8 p.m., Vino's, $10.

Since 2003, Nashville soul-pop-punkers Pink Spiders have cranked out records, toured incessantly, harvested some mainstream attention and rubbed elbows with industry heavy-hitters, all the while remaining true to a trashy, gritty, hip-grinding sound for which they cite the Cars, the Who, Marvin Gaye, Cheap Trick and a host of others as influences. Songs of chaotic life on the road abound, such as “Gimme Chemicals” and “Sleeping on the Floor,” and there's no shortage of actual hardship tales, such as a trailer fire in Buffalo, sleeping in New York City subways and the 2008 school (tour) bus fire that engulfed “clothes, laptops, passports, id's, ipods, cameras, receipts, cash, song lyrics, everything,” resulting in a mad plea for donations. This could be a rare opportunity to catch the Spiders, currently recording with former Talking Heads member Jerry Harrison, in a more intimate venue. Fiery indie rock act Magic Hassle opens.
