The band, of course, is no stranger to Old I - they've played the club numerous times and seen more than a few inspiring shows there.
Allison Jones and Derek Fieth recall one gig as being particularly super-cool - last summer's slightly infamous Brian Jonestown Massacre show. That sold-out show was crowded and charged with energy as club-goers crammed in to see the cult band (the group's legendary rival with the Dandy Warhols is chronicled in the 2004 documentary "Dig!"). But Jones and Fieth didn't mind the masses - their focus was on the music and how it was being made.
Jones, in particular, remembers being awed by the band's impressive equipment line-up.
"The guitarist had all these awesome pedals around him," she says. "We have to buy more pedals, for sure. It'd give us more raunchy feedback - more to play with."
More pedals equal more sound, Fieth adds. "It's just the two of us, so we can make so much more of that with more equipment," he says.
The show at Old Ironsides (1901 10th St.) starts at 9 p.m. and is 21-and-over only; tickets are $5 at the door. Also on the bill: Dana Gumbiner, Bright Light Fever and Social Studies.
