On the road to releasing its latest album, Wasted on the Dream,

On the road to releasing its latest album, Wasted on the Dream, being dropped from Warner Bros. Records was but a minor speed bump for Nashville-based psychedelic-rock duo JEFF the Brotherhood. After (jubilantly) announcing their separation with the label, brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall assured fans that the album would still see the light of day—only two weeks later than planned, released via their own, wonderfully named label, Infinity Cat Recordings. Delays and label changes aside, Wasted is a solid blend of classic rock and grunge, plus a few surprises: Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino, Diarrhea Planet guitarists Evan Bird and Emmett Miller, bassist Jack Lawrence (the Raconteurs, The Dead Weather), and Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson all make appearances. With Bully. Wimps. The Crocodile, 2200 Second Ave., 441-4618, thecrocodile.com. 8 p.m. $12. All ages. AZARIA C. PODPLESKYGet out your crusty hanky and wipe your bitter punk tears away because The Funhouse Reopening is today! After getting reduced to rubble in 2012 to make way for condos (barf), booker Brian Foss and his business partner Bobby Kuckelburg spent three years trying to find a new home for the scuzzy community of musical underdogs they fostered in their storied downtown venue (which you might know better as that place with the terrifying skeleton clown sign). Like a phoenix from the ashes, The Funhouse has risen once again—this time in El Corazon’s side bar, where it will serve daily happy-hour drinks and host all those weirdo shows you loved. And know that this go-round, The Funhouse will be impervious to developers and bulldozers. With DJ Bobcat. El Corazon, 109 Eastlake Ave., 262-0482, elcorazon.com. 3 p.m.–2 a.m. Free. 21 and up.
