Fri.: I used to be completely hot for Glenfrom All the Madmen. He's supertall and chiseled and has this artsy, tortured DavidBowiething going on. No point to that; just thought I'd mention it. Now he's Working Class Zeros, and he's playing at the DollHutwith Joyride(who are reunioning), Glory Holesand Derwood, who apparently are formerly of Burnin Groove. I used to be completely hot for Stevefrom Burnin Groove. No point to that, either. Now I live right by the Doll Hut, where every week more new and better rock stars travel in from out of state to be conveniently gone in the morning. Lord Jesus, please save me from myself. 9 p.m. $8. 21+. Doll Hut, 107 S. Adams St., Anaheim, (714) 533-1286; www.dollhut.com.
