LOCH NESS MONSTER
9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5-$8.
Together for years under various names and iterations, Loch Ness Monster celebrates on Friday the release of its long-gestating debut album, “Eleven Traditional Songs” (Max Recordings). With Sulac, also of Hector Faceplant, singing skewed lyrics about Edna Ferber novels and holes in the ozone over frantic, shimmering post-punk, there's sure to be plenty of bopping around. LNM has the foresight to know that booze on an empty stomach and bopping around rarely make a good combo, so to the first comers, they're offering traditional Scottish stew made “Scottish” Brian Hirrel, the band's guitarist, with beef tenderloin tips supplied by bassist Jim Young, who's the GM at Sonny Williams'. The stew, until it runs out, comes with admission, which is $8 with a CD or $5 without. Memphis' Dragoon, which features members of Trusty and the Grifters, opens the show with the Buttons.
