Tonight! Cubic Zirconia, Jenny Dee and the Deelinquents, and Heavy Birds

by

Cubic Zirconia (that’s them to the left) turn Mercury Lounge into a pheromone-stewed playground tonight as heavy electronic beats thud over vocalist Tiombe Lockhart’s dirty talk, grunts, and squeals. But for those who can’t stomach a sloppy good time, Jenny Dee and the Deelinquents, a ’60s-throwback girl group (with a few guys thrown in there), stitch together gutsy vocals, gallant sax, and dense harmonies at Union Hall. Finally, Heavy Birds flood Glasslands Gallery with fuzzed-out drones and gruff vocals that cushion quivering guitars stretched to their final, dying breath. Which can also be a good time.
