Sticky Fingers @ Bar Smith

It's been a helluva year for Sticky Fingers. The weekly hipster wingding created by William Fucking Reed has hosted plenty of taste-making indie rock, electronica, and DJ acts (Database, Flosstradamus, Pictureplane), changed venues, and helped reinforce the hepcat reputation of Bar Smith, 130 East Washington Street. The night's one-year anniversary party on Friday, April 29, will be equally pimp, as Reed and the other Sticky Fingers residents — including Prince $$, Austin Head, 2 Tone Disco, Pickster One, and DJ Radar — will welcome Canadian synth-poppers Parallels into their midst to celebrate the occasion. The duo of Holly Dodson and Cameron Findlay (formerly of Crystal Castles) will both perform and stage a DJ set during the evening, which will also feature a spectacular laser light display. Doors open at 9 p.m. and admission is $7. Visit www.statesidepresents.com for tickets.
