L.A. rockers Nico Vega play a juiced-up version of garage rock with a crystalline modern rock sheen; they howl, they stomp, they shimmer. This Friday, they'll also have literal juice on hand before their show at The Basement with Crash Kings. The group, whose single "Beast" was featured in the trailer for the video game "BioShock Infinite," will be handing out free samples of its "Beast Juice" at Bubbles Tea & Juice the North Marketat 5:30 p.m. Friday. The juice consists of beets, spinach, kale, carrots, apples, pineapple, mint and ginger - so, pretty beasty, as the kids say.
