STAFF PICK: Beat Happening, Jamboree (K): "Every couple of months, I remember how good this band is. While the rest of the indie/punk scene was Black Flag/Minor Threat fans kicking the shit out of one another, this primitive twee-punk trio was a big, fey middle finger. They're like the Velvet Underground for people who would never do heroin."(Kyle Olson, host ofThings That Are Square, Thursdays at 6 p.m.)
