Teen Scream 

It's a full-blown teen nu-punk-fest.

Mmmm, Prozac. We'd like to pop those little stinkers like Tic Tacs, but they're reserved for people who need them way more than we do. People like the folks behind Ambulance for Angeles -- people who take the word "emotion" to a level that we couldn't possibly imagine. Sounding a little like Elliott Smith but shooting for more of a Pedro the Lion-like sound, the local boys of Ambulance for Angeles will play a farewell show tomorrow at Fat Tuesday's before they take off to shop their emo-rock sound around to various labels.

AforA will play with a host of other lookalike bands, including a Seattle-based punk troupe, the Schoolyard Heroes. Fronted by Ryann Donnelly, the 18-year old vocal chanteuse who's a little bit Karen O. and a lot Courtney Love, brings their fast-driving punk ballads of interplanetary battles for your listening pleasure. Their music is the soundtrack of any quarter-life crisis: angry, confused and totally nonsensical. Maybe so, but late-teen angst has allowed the young Heroes to share a stage with Pretty Girls Make Graves, the Accused and Vendetta Red. And, last we checked, the guitarist had a seriously cool Afro -- totally not what we'd expect from their punky sound.

The rest of the lineup is a full-blown teen nu-punk-fest, with Seattle's the Divorce headlining. New Love Proposition, the side project of Coretta Scott member Scott Woodward, will open with a played down, sing-along kind of sound. Get there early, and be ready to rock.

The Divorce, the Schoolyard Heroes, Ambulance for Angeles, New Love Proposition and Matthew Winters play on Friday, June 3, at 7 pm at Fat Tuesday's. Tickets: $5. Call 489-3969.
