Mon., June 18, 7 p.m.

What’s in a name, anyway? Though there may be a brewing Supreme Court battle that will determine whether these Seattle rockers can trademark “Thunderpussy,” the band’s raucous output is far more interesting. Earlier this year, the quartet who often refer to themselves as “diamonds in the muff” released their Greatest Tits EP, which served as a “taste tester, tongue teaser, titty twister,” to their newly released self-titled album with tracks like “Velvet Noose” and “Utero Tango.” Known for their “role-reversed cock-rock,” Thunderpussy will get you hyped on their high-energy, unapologetic, hypersexual bravado. $15-$18
