The Jim Jims, Izzy and the Kesstronics

When: Fri., March 5, 8 p.m. 2010

If there's such a thing as your average Denver band, the Jim Jims is not it. The group is steeped in the minuteman tradition of vintage SST Records — last year's Bottom of the City EP boasted seven songs in about 15 minutes — and the joyless division of early '80s post-punk. (Frontman Adam Martin does a good Ian Curtis impersonation when he wants to.) Also performing on tonight's bill at the Rocket Room (230 Pueblo Ave., myspace.com/therocketroom) is the Kesstronics featuring Izzy Zaidman, who, according to club owner Dave Cantrell, "used to play with Wayne [Hancock], and I think was the guy that almost killed his bandmate." Well, all right! Showtime is 8ish. — Bill Forman
