Tonight we cheer on some of Seattle's best bands as they prepare for their journey down to the annual schmooze and booze fest that is SXSW. Power-pop stars Visqueen, still riding high from releasing the best record of their career, headline the party, which also features the fantastic Hey Marseilles, Mash Hall, and Fences. So go to Neumos and go crazy—after all, it'll be thanks to them that Seattle looks good in Austin this year. (Neumos, 925 E Pike St, 709-9467. 8 pm, $10, 21+.)
