7/14 Liars w/ John Wiese High Noon Saloon, 9pm, 18+, more info
Indie Rock
Liars write music that is surprisingly formulated after the beats are laid down on the drum machine -- exhibiting fundamental elements of punk rock. Synthetic keypads, vocal modulation, and interspersed prearranged compositions, mixed with their guitar-bass-drums equation, create angular yet melodic songs. Liars are reminiscent of U.K. groups that embraced dance music during the late '70s/early '80s (A Certain Ratio, Gang of Four, the Slits) -- bands that are all known for insidiously adding danceable rhythms to punk.  For tickets, head over to True Endeavors!

7/17 Southern Culture on the Skids High Noon Saloon, 10pm, 21+, more info
Alternative Rock
True to their name, North Carolina's Southern Culture on the Skids offers an affectionate parody of local white-trash trailer-park culture, matching their skewed outlook with a wild, careening brand of rock & roll. SCOTS' music is a quintessentially Southern-fried amalgam of rockabilly, boogie, country, blues, swamp pop, and chitlin circuit R&B, plus a liberal dose of California surf guitar, a hint of punk attitude, and the occasional mariachi horns. Following an early incarnation as a relatively straightforward roots rock outfit, they morphed into a raucous, sleazy, tongue-in-cheek party band obsessed with sex and food; in fact, fried chicken became a crucial part of their live performances, whether it was used in eating contests or tossed into the audience. Southern Culture may play chiefly to an underground rock audience, but their gonzo tributes to the South aren't as smug as some of their peers working similar territory, since the band has genuine roots in the area.  For tickets, head to True Endeavors!
7/17 John Hiatt & the Combo Barrymore Theatre, 8pm, more info
Americana Folk Rock
Americana  legend John Hiatt will be in Madison Saturday night to grace Wisconsin with his folky rock goodness.  John Hiatt will be joined by his supporting band the Combo for this highly anticipated show.  Hiatt released his album Same Old Man in 2008 and will be releasing an album, The Open Road, later in 2010.  Don't miss you chance to see  John Hiatt in Madison this Saturday!

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
