Ball of Wax #11

Even though it sounds like an ancient, half-wrapped piece of

butterscotch, Harry Candy is not what you find at the bottom of your

grandma's purse. It's a musical game where musicians from several

bands get together, form new bands, write, record, and mix down their

love child of a track in a mere 24 hours. This melodious frolic (which

I'm guessing gets mighty interesting around hour 17) produces some

genre-bending results and serves as inspiration for the 11th Ball of

Wax compilation, benefiting Hollow Earth Radio. Tonight's show

features participating acts like Beast Please Be Still and Webelos

among many others playing as themselves, but BOW mastermind Levi

Fuller let me in on a secret, upcoming all-ages show (the location of

which is disclosed at ballofwax.org) where the bands will be playing

as their newly formed Harry Candy alter egos. With Webelos, Beast

Please Be Still, Correspondents, the Luna Moth, Snowman Plan, Seth

Howard, Sweet Potatoes, Mike Dumovich,

and Virgin of Birds. Sunset Tavern, 5433 Ballard Ave. N.W., 784-4880.

9 p.m. $6.
