Coming back through Richmond is MC Chris a humble moniker for the man who was once MC Pee Pants on Cartoon Network's "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" now re-teaming with pop cornballs The Gaskets for another show that's heavy on electronic beats and faux-ghetto silliness. (MC Chris' first album is "Life's a Bitch and I'm Her Pimp." So there you go.) Added to the roster are recent Rock Lotto favorites Titty Committee and the Chapel Hill multi-instrumentalist, vowel-hating pop foursome Snmnmnm. The show is July 15 at 9 p.m. $10-$12. 353-4263.
And the Band Name of the Week Is ...
The Lord Weird Slough Feg, San Francisco's Celtic-influenced metal outfit. Known also as just Slough Feg, its sound has been favorably compared with Iron Maiden and others from the grim, loud '80s scene. And the band's sound, though recent, has been described as transplanted from those happy, heavy days, when songs about wizards and "Psionic Illuminations" could be roared convincingly. Slough Feg plays the Nanci Raygun July 19 with Twisted Tower Dire, Widow and Time Lord at 10 p.m. $6.
