Here's a new video for a new Cake Bake Betty song called "Oklahoma City," which will appear on the album To the Dark Tower, scheduled for release next month.
All We Seabees
Magic Mountain Family Band
THE GO W/ALL WE SEABEES After preceding the garage-rock euphoria by a smidge with 1999's Whatcha' Doin' (which included contributions from one-time bandmate Jack White), The Go suffered through label troubles that delayed their return until the wave had passed. While 2004's self-titled second album features a terrific glam-inflected garage stomp, it pretty much disappeared without a trace. On the follow-up, Howl on the Haunted Beat You Ride, the band takes a left turn, forgoing their blazing rock for a tuneful psych-pop amble. Following in the footsteps of late-'60s British Invasion acts like The Kinks and The Zombies, their latest grooves to harmony-abetted melodies and easy-going rock shuffles. Opening are hearty local folk-rockers All We Seabees, whose songs feel as intimate as overheard confessions of guilt between long-illicit lovers. Like The Go, they've got a fine sense of melody as well as surprising guile and a graceful shimmy to lighten the step of their loping roots rock. 9 p.m. at The End —CHRIS PARKER

It's the Kinks-y rock of Turncoats (typing "Kinks-y" makes me think of Kinski—the band, not the German—who are awesome but not Kinks-y at all) along with the kinky surf sounds of The Northridge Rangers. ($5 at 9 p.m.)
Don Caballero has been added to the Menomena/Illinois bill at Exit/In on Halloween night. Oh, and in semi-sorta-related news that isn't really new, that band The Battles (not Battles) changed their name, to Giantess, like, a while ago.

As some of you may or may not know, this past Saturday we here at the Cream had a little shindig. I had the excellent opportunity to put together a DJ set (on my iPod, I admit it). We were each asked to include a local track and Kyle Andrews was nice enough to mix up one of his excellent indie pop gems for me. Here is the remix of "Polar Bear." It's pretty fracking awesome and I think it held up quite well against "Ignition (Remix)" and "No Diggity."
