Live shows by Hawnay Troof—the solo electro-punk project of explosive XBXRX frontman Vice Cooler—are wildly energetic spectacles, with Cooler rapping and dancing and leaping around. His beats move bodies, and his frank and sincere lyrics—about everything from explicit sexuality to the wonders of DIY—aim to free minds. Growing up in a repressive Christian household in Alabama, Cooler understands all too well the power of punk rock to save lives. With Little Party and the Bad Business, the Wiggins, and Talbot Tagora. (Vera Project, Seattle Center, 956-8372. 7:30 pm, $9/$8, all ages.)
