THE CRYSTAL METHOD
9 p.m., Juanita's. $18 adv., $20 d.o.s.

 Since the debut of its platinum “Vegas” in 1997, the Crystal Method has continuously raised the bar for electronic music. Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland, both born in the City of Lights, met in L.A., where they discovered they had a crush on the same girl — Crystal. They revealed their dilemma to a confidant, who replied, “Ah, the Crystal method.” Although this is the true source of the name's origin, it unmistakably also serves as a snide reference to speed, as do several song titles. Since “Vegas,” CM has released three additional albums, “Tweekend,” “Legion of Boom” and this year's “Divided By Night,” darker and with more guest vocalists. Reminiscent of its pioneered sound, the album's hip-hop direction can't be ignored. With local beatmasters Justin Sane, Jared Lawler and Ewell on the bill, this all-ages show should bring out everyone not quite old enough to throw down at Discovery.
