Tonight at Mercy Lounge, it's the Moustache May wrap party, featuring How I Became the Bomb, Ghostfinger & Codaphonic, where you can be surrounded by Thomas Magnums, pay lip service to facial adornment and check out Richie Kirkpatrick's bent fur. Presented by the guy who keeps that running list of cool shit, Yewknee.

Since I wasn't here in the late '80s and a basic Internet search isn't turning anything up, I'm turning to you, Cream Readers—he and she of vast music trivia, hometown pride and late '80s Bangles parodies—to help solve this local music conundrum.

Our pick of the week: Bobby Rush. (But we're going to remind you about the Moustache May celebration and Le Tigre DJ set later.)
