Fast Times: High School soundtracks were different for everyone; some went the Morrissey route, others turned to The Ramones. Later on, Dave Matthews and Sublime became important among certain other groups – no matter what you listened to in high school, you can be sure to hear it tonight at the Fast Times party at the Barbary. Just post your youth-defining song on their facebook page and the DJs will work it into their set. The open bar from 10-11 p.m. sweetens the deal. 10 p.m.-2 a.m.
Catch a Perfect Mess: Austin's White Denim take to the stage at Johnny Brenda's this evening with a boozey swagger and Pink Floyd's swaying, mirage-like vocals. Throw in some math-rock guitar and you've got one of the most interesting acts performing today. $10; 9 p.m.
Sidewalk Boozin': Having a pint outside the White Dog Cafe is a summer pastime in which everyone should partake. Get there early for half-price drafts and prime ivy-league watchin'. 5-7 p.m.
Going out can be a gamble, so why leave it up to chance? Stack the deck every afternoon by peeping Play's Dance Card.
