Monday, March 10

The Brooklyn band Swearin’ plays the kind of pop-inflected, tough-punk rock locals have learned to love from The RattleSnakes. They’re joined tonight by local “space punk” explorers High Spirits and psychedelic garage-rock act S.S. Cretins at SPACE Gallery (538 Congress St., Portland) at 8 p.m. Tix: $8 (18+). 828-5600. space538.org.
