Where to go. What to hear.



The Fame and Heath Haynes at Out of Bounds

Saturday, March 12, is a big day for music this week, as the following shows indicate. New York once again proves it owns flashy pop with The Fame. The band's swelling riffs and soaring choruses build ballads from rock's happier days, creating a sound that is a homage to, well, fame. The Fame's shiny rock is tempered by local foursome Heath Haynes and the Crying Shames, who mix a little more roots and a little more soul into their already energetic rock. The show starts at 10 p.m. $5. 355-7390.

The Comas at Nanci Raygun

Richmond's Hit Play Promotions never fails to bring in bands with an interesting sound — or at least an interesting name. The Comas, Vietnam and The Silent Type play the Nanci Raygun March 12. Headliners The Comas are quite a bit more charged in their rock than the name might indicate. Their melodic, thoughtful pop meets the brooding story-songs of Vietnam and the quite vocal Silent Type starting at 7 p.m. $5. 353-4263.

The Snake The Cross The Crown at Alley Katz

With its debut album, "Mander Salis," this band proves that it can mix moody, ambient rock, fuzzy guitars and a pleading lead singer — and not come off as a pretentious band whose moniker will catch eyes searching the record-store racks. Floating and polished, the songs remain accessible. The Snake The Cross The Crown plays with Mae, Hot Rod Circuit, and Parkside View, 5-9 p.m. $10.
