Three of Salem’s favorite bands packed into one eventful evening. This is also a birthday celebration for Steve Cannon – guitarist for Salem’s Songs for Alice and all around excellent human being. Starting the night will be the pop/punk power trio City of Pieces. They haven’t performed in a month of Sundays, so it’s going to be great seeing them back at it. The straightforward rockin’ M69s are back at it with some new songs recorded back in November and finishing out the night is Night Lizard – Salem’s electronic dance darlings. We predict wild times here. Brown’s Towne Lounge • Free
