• One of the large plate-glass windows at Chop Suey was broken from the inside during the Jai Ho! Bollywood Dance Party on Saturday evening. Though sources say the damage was allegedly caused when a person (or persons) was thrown through the glass during an altercation, we prefer to imagine that someone was just DANCING SO HARD.

• Friday night, Wooden Shjips turned the Crocodile into a frottage-intensive clusterfuck—and it wasn't even a free Sailor Jerry–sponsored show. The San Francisco foursome is one of the least surprising bands working now, but their serpentine throb of minimalist psych rock is one of the coolest sounds ever conceived. Wooden Shjips' genius idea is fusing the Modern Lovers' "Roadrunner" with Suicide's "Ghost Rider," and then pushing their riffs into an LSD/OCD hypnosis. What a trip their performance was.

The Presidents of the United States of America surprised attendees of the Neumos 10th anniversary party on Tuesday evening. During the set, lead Pres Chris Ballew was midway through an animated story when he abruptly stopped and shouted, "HOLD ON! MY WIFE WANTS TO TELL ME SOMETHING!" After ducking down for a few seconds, he announced his wife wanted to hear "Body," which they then played immediately. A few songs later, two drunk giddy audience members fell to the ground, clutching each other, apparently too wasted elated to continue standing.

• Also last Tuesday, up-and-coming hospital-gowned trio Childbirth celebrated the release of their 2.5-ounce cassette It's a Girl at Chop Suey. The excellent NighTraiN, So Pitted, and Half Breed also played, causing everyone in the audience to "synch up," if you know what I mean. You know what I mean.

• Provocative rockers Partman Parthorse celebrated the release of their newest album, Wet Sounds, at the Highline on Saturday with frontman Gary Smith covered in fake blood and plenty of mesh. A source said they "saw a butthole and a penis, which I was warned would happen." Apparently a lollipop was involved with said butthole as well—or maybe it was all wishful thinking.

• The Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl because Macklemore performed "Thrift Shop" and "Can't Hold Us" during the untelevised halftime show of the team's playoff game against the 49ers on Sunday. Or maybe they won because of Justin Timberlake starting a SEA! HAWKS! chant during his KeyArena show on Friday. (Unrelated: Doesn't it seem like JT and Mack would make a good wholesome-best-friend crime-fighting team?) recommended
