ALTERNATIVE | THE SOFT MOON/MAJICAL CLOUDZ 

I'm going to tell you it's alternative up there, but people, what we have ourselves here is some industrial/New Wave mix in the finest, darkest veins. While The Soft Moon comes from the Bay Area, the band's music is clearly dragged screaming out from the depths of a crevasse found under a rock. It even has a song about spiders. It very much fits in with a night skulking, putting your eyeliner on and lacing up your corset. It's music to sway eerily to, but seems to mostly linger on instrumentals that can make you fall out of time and space. Majical Cloudz opens up this portal with a smooth mix of keyboard-based electronica. It's so smooth you might even be able to let the band woo your date for you, with surprisingly subtle touches that keep you coming back for more. After the bands, the Shakedown DJs will be there to rocket you back to reality with some snappy beats.

The Soft Moon and Majical Cloudz play Thursday, January 10, 8:30 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $8-$10. 454-2966, bugjar.com.
