A benefit for 24-year-old local hair stylist Nicollette Kessler, who was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease, this show features three of the hardest-hitting bands in town. Headliners The Esoteric have been the talk of the town since they debuted a manic set of new material at The Bottleneck two weeks ago. The band's ear-splitting attack is as tuneful as it is abrasive, mixing odd time signatures and calculated rhythm blasts into thoughtfully composed songs. Santo Gold brings its Fugazi-inspired hardcore to the stage, while Unknown Stuntman plays old-school punk rock. Minimum door donation is $5. All donations including tips go to help Nicollette.
