Big Boots. From way back.

10 p.m., Pizza D'Action. $3.

Almost five months to the day that the roof came down in Pizza D's dining room, two local bands come together to celebrate its repair. Better believe the regulars will be out, marveling at all the room and extra air to blow smoke into. They'll have a local, and likely bar favorite, to help them along. Led by former Sugar and the Raw front man Mason Maudlin, Big Boots offers a strange, but usually effective, stylistic mix. Maudlin's mewing and phrasing often sound indebted to Thom Yorke, but the band's music leans more toward Southern rock and Brit-pop. Co-founder Mike Motley (drums) and new addition Trevor Ware (bass), who local band adherents will recognize from Grand Serenade, round out the line-up. The Former Members Of is a new band, making its debut on Saturday, that features Motley, former Soophie Nun Squad and Sugar and the Raw member Mark Lierly and Murdock Jones, whose former bands have only played private parties. Based on Jones' drunk strumming and singing in the film “Slumberland,” he's more than due for a public debut.
