Our Pick: Part Time Punks Festival: A Certain Ratio, Pylon, Love Is All, Medium Medium, Savage Republic, The Nightingales, Nervous Gender, Vivian Girls, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Warpaint, NoDzzz, The Urinals, Wild Stares, The Muslims, Magic Bullets, Grimble Grumble, Softboiled Eggies, Mika Miko @ The Echo & Echoplex

We haven't seen a Sunday like this since the summertime. We've got Athens-based new wave rock band the B-52's performing at Club Nokia in Downtown. Seattle's own experimental rockers Minus the Bear will be coming through the Henry Fonda Music Box with our favorite Raleigh-based indie pop group, the Annuals. LA locals Tigers Can Bite You are slated to rock at the Alterknit Lounge at the Knitting Factory. And, lastly, singer-songwriter Charlie Wadhams will be continuing his month-long Sunday Night Residency at Tangier. Word on the street is that Tangier will be closing its doors soon due to financial woes. But how could anyone turn down the Part Time Punks Festival at the Echo and Echoplex compound? Not only will some of LA's prominent fringe acts be playing (The Muslims, Mika Miko, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti), but living legends like Manchester's A Certain Ratio will be headlining the predominantly punk-tinged extravaganza. It will be the band's first performance in the US since 1985—the year I was born.
