Set List 

Where to go. What to hear.


The Parker String Quartet at RocksMaybe it's the novelty of being able to drink shots of whiskey while listening to a foursome trot out classical pieces, or that this New York quartet has received international acclaim and played everywhere from Carnegie Hall to Wolf Trap. Either way, there's a lure to hear the Parker String Quartet go through Beethoven, improvisational pieces and original works as a part of a tour to put "classical music in non-traditional spaces," according to the Concert Artists Guild. And rounding out the nontradition is singer-songwriter Wynn Walent, Friday, Sept. 1, at 8:30 p.m. $5. 648-ROCK.

The Pink Party 2006Sounds a little like politickin', and it is, in a way, especially considering it's an election year. But mostly, at least for the purposes of what happens at the Canal Club Saturday, Sept. 2, at 9 p.m., it's a dance party put on by the newly formed Infinite Love Project, a promoter focusing on gay-rights issues. To that end, there's DJ Tony Fernandez, a mini-cabaret and a concentration of pink in the outfits. $17.50-$25. 643-2582.

Gorilla Biscuits at Alley Katz

Straight-edge New York punks the Gorilla Biscuits, fixtures of the late-'80s scene around places like CBGB's, burned fast and came apart by the early '90s in that way that bands do. Guitarist Walter Schreifels went one way, and singer Anthony Civorelli went on to form CIV, adding a little pop to the mix and releasing "Can't Wait One Minute More" in 1995. Now they've decided to re-form for a month of high-speed touring, terminating appropriately enough at CBGB's. They play Alley Katz Thursday, Aug. 31, with Comeback Kid and DTN, 6-10 p.m. $16-$20. 643-2816.

Kari Smith at the Tobacco CompanyThe Richmond singer-songwriter has decided to seek her fortunes down Nashville way, and she's packing up the piano and the smooth lilt of her voice for her imminent departure. Before she dives into that sea of countrified hipsters, though, she'll play a show Thursday, Aug. 31, at 8 p.m. to celebrate her first full-length CD, which should help her swim once she gets there. Free. 270-1461. S
