You may find yourself in the middle of a Moment here. On the one hand, Jacksonville’s Black Kids, the CMJ-hysteria-surviving, Cure-jocking, brother-sister sexual-innuendoing indie-rock quartet with the exceedingly likeable (and just released) debut, Partie Traumatic; on the other, Santos’ Party House, the new not-quite-discovered retro downtown dance lair housing midgets, breakdancers, and down-market champagne. Tonight, the twain shall meet in a blaze of young hormones: Rarely do these inchoate, communitarian-type buzz bands get to face their public under such studio-lot circumstances. Whoever’s out there making that documentary about blissed-out kids, ephemeral pop music, and the Internet—this is your opening-credits sequence. With Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson.
