So who’s been booking all those punk shows at the Down Under Lounge lately? The bar hosted shows Monday and Tuesday night this week with another show tomorrow night (featuring Texas punkers Dead Words and our very own Cordial Spew, among others).

The guy answering the inquiry at the A-13 Booking Facebook page was Rick Bennett of the band Addiction 13 (hence the A-13 moniker). Bennett said the punk show log jam was a matter of timing. “It’s not usually this many shows in such a short time, but I got hit up by several touring bands that needed shows this week,” he said.

A-13 isn’t the only company booking at The Down Under. Perpetual Nerves Productions, helmed by Chris Aponick, has booked indie/garage act The Gotobeds Tuesday, Nov 18, at The Down Under, with New Lungs and Little Ripple.

Benson will be hopping tonight.

At The Waiting Room, indie-folkie David Bazan (of Pedro the Lion fame) performs alongside the Passenger String Quartet. Bazan and strings have a new album out, Volume 1, which features all new studio recordings of Pedro The Lion and Bazan solo songs. A familiar face opens tonight’s show: David Dondero. $20, 9 p.m.

Also tonight, Memphis garage band Nots headlines at The Sweatshop Gallery. The band’s new album, We Are Nots, came out Tuesday on Goner Records. Opening is the Omaha synth-fueled punk band Digital Leather (a personal favorite) and Coaxed. $7, 9:30 p.m. Remember, entrance is in the back and it’s BYOB.

Finally, Nashville psyche-blues band All Them Witches plays tonight at Reverb Lounge with The Well. $10, 9 p.m.
