What To Do Tonight: Follow Japanther to Candyland

Staff Writer

Tonight Japanther's unique blend of tech-tinged, fuzzed-out pop-punk (secret ingredient: a pinch of old-school soul) comes to the Legion of Doom, 1579 Indianola Ave. As you can see in the above clip, the band's music is hella fun, so they alone would probably be enough to make a show worth seeing. But wait, there's more! An equally invigorating act called The Underground Road to Candyland is coming too. They too season their hooky punk tunes with influences that dig a little farther into history. And hottt locals Tin Armor will be there. (Performing. Not just enjoying the show with you.) 9 p.m. start, $5 donation.

I mean, what else are you going to do? Go see Yes with a singer from a tribute band?

Oh, and I should mention that Top Chef: New York premieres tonight at 10 on Bravo, and South Park (10 p.m., Comedy Central) just might be a parody of High School Musical.
