What To Do Tonight: Don't playa hate, inaugurate

Inaugural Ballin' brings together the skewed sounds of Rollo, Marvin the Robot, Dead Set Ready, RTFO Bandwagon and Incognegro. That collection of off-center rockers, folkies and hip-hoppers will descend on The Treehouse, 887 Chambers Rd., beginning at 8 p.m. Beforehand during happy hour, there will be "treats for non-profit sector folk" but I'm not sure if that means there will be a fundraiser for charities or there will be free stuff for charity workers. This event costs $3.

Meanwhile, down at 115 Parsons Ave., Carabar is hosting its own (significantly heavier) shindig called Barack Obama Has a Posse. Besides $1 falafel and beef tacos, the attractions include Muscle Puzzle, The Slide Machine, Churches Burn and Bestfriends. This begins at 9 p.m. and is free.
