Richmond ZineFest Benefit at Gallery5

Consider this your save-the-date card for the festival of independent, ridiculous, inventive and creatively stapled publications, which comes around in late April. The celebration of the zine (the Stone Age ancestor of the similarly abbreviated blog) should introduce you to some of the people you see talking to themselves at Kinko's. But it can't happen without money, so singer-songwriter Liza Kate, experimental number-crunchers Ones and Zeroes, pop family Triple Twins and punk hybrid Mouthbreather are playing a fundraising show Saturday, Feb. 24 at 8 p.m. $5. 644-0005.

Against Me! and Riverboat Gamblers at Alley Katz

How many bands deserve their extraneous punctuation marks? So few, especially the ones with umlauts and stuff. But Against Me! is definitely an exclamation-point kind of band, rolling along like a whiskey tune at one point and roaring like the most political punk at another. But the band reinvents itself every few stanzas, it seems, and never appears to look back. Austin's Riverboat Gamblers sling guitars like any song could be the one to bring the garage down on top of them, them and all their pop-punk habits. They play with Fake Problems Monday, Feb. 26, 6-10 p.m. $10-$12. 643-2816.

Warm in the Wake at Poe's Pub

No slight to Poe's, but Atlanta's Warm in the Wake seems a bit too gentle for a honky-tonk establishment. The band is afloat in guitars, in harmonized "ooohs," the kind of tunes that conjure visions of two scuffed Converse sneakers playing footsie. But it's got itself some teeth, like a pedal-steel. Which is what makes it a good fit for Poe's after all. The show is Wednesday, Feb. 21, at 9:30 p.m. $5. 648-2120.
