Over the last year, The Stranger's music staff has combed through hundreds of local bands to find our favorite eight. We call them the Young Ones: the Pharmacy, Talbot Tagora, Truckasauras, the Moondoggies, Throw Me the Statue, the Physics, PWRFL Power, and Sleepy Eyes of Death. We adore their music, predict they'll have a collectively amazing 2008, and salute their efforts with a big ol' party at Neumo's and Sole Repair. Even better: The $5 door charge goes directly to benefit Real Change. Last year's Young Ones Dyme Def and Arthur & Yu return to headline. Be there. (Neumo's, 925 E Pike St, and Sole Repair, 1001 E Pike St, www.thestranger.com/youngones. 8 pm, $5, 21+.)
