Certainly not to be confused with any number of other sensitive Horse bands grazing in the indie rock field, Horse the Band are Nintendo-addled L.A. hardcore caffeine cases who just might be the last bastion of crazy tourdogism before high gas prices ruin punk rock for good. They’re currently on their ambitious “Earth Tour,” on which they hit about 45 countries in four continents. Show up and ask them what the scene is like in United Arab Emirates. With fellow screech-jokers I Wrestled a Bear Once. — CHRISTOPHER WEINGARTEN.
8 p.m., $14.50. Blender Theater at Gramercy, 127 E 23rd St., 212-777-6800.
