Not a bad live-music agenda for a Tuesday night. Especially since you don't even need to leave your house/car for the first one. Local young'uns the McKenzies, whose brisk power-pop touched off quite the commenting spree after their Secret Saturday Festival set a couple weeks back (then impressed Rocks Off quite a bit the next night at Boondocks), play at 9 p.m. live on KTRU's (91.7 FM) The Local Show. Skyline Network honcho adr precedes the group at 8 p.m., presumably to talk about his new "Old Farts" concert series at the Mink. (More on that one tomorrow.)

If psychedelic pop a la the Zombies or Sgt. Pepper's is more your thang, former Cotton Mather frontman Robert Harrison brings his new group Future Clouds & Radar down from Austin to play dreamweavers with neighbor and Conroe native Aimee Bobruk at McGonigel's Mucky Duck.
