Jennifer Herrema (ex-Royal Trux) has brought the sleaze back in town with her band RTX, first hitting up the Knitting Factory Tap Bar tonight (March 4th, tickets are still available) with locals Blues Control, Bogan Dust, and Polite Sleeper, and then Glasslands in Brooklyn tomorrow with Telepathe and Necking. If you're going to Knitting Factory tonight, note that Boris and Growing are also playing right upstairs.

Child Abuse will be on hand (the band, not the action) for the Glasslands show as well, reppin Lovepump United (Mookie Singerman from Genghis Tron's label). Lovepump United will also play host to their own shindig at SXSW this year with Monotonix, HEALTH, Clipd Beaks, Old Time Relijun, and Apes. Look for RTX to also make an appearance at the Tee Pee Records party with J. Mascis's band Witch (who have a great new album), the awesome Graveyard, Titan, and others. All dates below...
