… And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, Girl in a Coma at the Beauty Bar. Design and screen printing outlet Pure Grease launches — appropriately — in style with a barrage of great Central Texas acts, from Trail of Dead’s stirring art rock to Girl in a Coma’s take-no-prisoners guitar caterwaul. With a lineup like that, Pure Grease should have no trouble packing the venue from patio to hair dryers. With Eagle Claw, Lights Go Out, Markov, White Rhino, Not in the Face and Melogrand. 7 p.m. $10. 617 E. Seventh St. www.myspace.com/beautybaraustin.
