Bullet the Blue Sky

Skunked: Jesse Sublett will sign copies of his harrowing new memoir Never the Same Again (Murder! Cancer! Punk rock!), 5pm, Friday, at Waterloo Records. Sublett-led Austin Music Awards showstoppers Class of '78 will do an encore performance, hopefully including the Velvet Underground's "White Light/White Heat" again.

The Back Room heard an unfamiliar tune Saturday: “Wedding March.” Dusty Kohn of explosivo pop-punkers Dynamite Boy and fiancée Mindy Orsak tied the knot after DB's set, the rest of the band acting as groomsmen. Club owner Mark Olivarez threw in a hotel room for the night as a gift. Mazel tov!

Well-to-do quartet the Yuppie Pricks are looking for a mohawked punk rock type to be the cover model for their forthcoming Alternative Tentacles album, Hostile Takeover, and promise a Hot Topic gift certificate to the winner. Contact www.yuppiepricks.com.

Disco Hospital celebrates one year of treating the post-punk-impaired Sunday at Beerland, 10pm, with DJ Rachel Goldstar and early-Eighties eeriness from This Microwave World and Pack of Lies. The Gang of Four Appreciation Society meets before, during, and after.

What are the Texas Rollergirls and Rockland Eagles doing on the ABC Family Channel? Good question. They both managed to wind up in the same episode of Switched, the reality series that follows two people as they switch lives for a week. See what hilarity ensues at the viewing party, 9pm Sunday at Jackalope.
