Fun, no-holds barred rock and explosive indie dance music on tap tonight---

Juliette Lewis returns to town just two months following her gig opening up for The Pretenders at Red Butte Garden. Despite her energetic and highly flexible performance (knee-pads included), Lewis failed to bowl over the crowd gathered to praise Chrissy Hynde at the bucolic outdoor venue. What's more, the actress-turned-musician seemed a little green in the presence of the rock-royalty headliners. We're eager to see what happens when she plays Club Vegas. Don’t miss openers The Ettes - a raw and powerful trio of gutsy garage-rockers propelled by siren Coco’s smart, tough “Pink Ladies” delivery - and American Bang.

Also tonight, Boston's Passion Pit headlines Urban Lounge. Michael Angelakos' started the group inadvertently after making a record for his girlfriend on Valentine's Day. Obviously, things didn't end with that singular romantic gesture. And no wonder - the synth-drive dance music is incredibly catchy.
