THE MOVING FRONT
9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

Has any local album in recent memory been more anticipated? Nearly three years after it released a widely adored self-titled debut, The Moving Front is finally ready to unleash its follow-up, "Everyday Dissonance." A promising title from a group of post-punk polemicists, to be sure. That we're only now seeing the album (with cover art by this week's Times' cover artist Nate Powell!) owes to several factors, including the band's assiduousness; it spent months on end with engineer Jason Weinheimer at Lucky Dog Audio Post tweaking. Also, lately the 'Front's managed to hold onto guitarists about as well as Spinal Tap kept drummers. First Jeff Matika joined for about a day before he got called up to the bigs with Green Day. Then founding member Mark Lewis sort of moved to Austin. And then Scott Cook, who replaced Matika, started working with Julian Lennon and traveling around the country. Saturday, look for all of them to be onstage for at least a little while, along with other special guests, like joshua from Velvet Kente. From the band's Facebook event for the concert: "Have you ever been in The Moving Front? Well, you can be again, just show up to our practice a few times, 'cause it's gonna be like mothership connection up there but with less funk, no spacecraft, and a lot more beer." Magic Hassle and joshua open.
