    Sludge, System Exclusive, Lauren Lakis

    Sludge cut surf rock riffs with the bratty intonation of Molly Masson, who smirks in “Greg Abbott’s Maxi Pad” – “I wake up every morning and I sprinkle fetuses into my Cinnamon Toast Crunch.” Pasadena’s System Exclusive dole out more melodic synth-pop, but they’re not afraid to get weird, either: Recent single “Party All the Time” offers a faithful rendition of Eddie Murphy’s novelty classic, bolstered with an army march edge. L.A. transplant Lauren Lakis, meanwhile, envelops her ethereal croon in moody shoegaze.
    Thu., June 1, 10pm. $10 cover (21+).

Tonight they celebrate this anniversary with a mini ball presented by sexual health heavy-hitters ASHwell and the Q Austin, meaning there’s money, honey. Competitors can win up to 150 bucks in ballroom categories like Majorette and Sex Siren. Legendary Akasha and BabiBoi Juicy are in the DJ booth, and the legendary Natalie Lepore is your master of ceremonies. –James Scott
