Thanks to a deal with Akron’s Audio Eagle, Knoxville’s Royal Bangs are ready to make some noise. They recently released their third album, Let It Bleep, a mix of electronica, garage-rock and other random sounds. Vocals scream over equally screaming guitars, giving the music the sort of texture the Rolling Stones would have had if they were just getting started today. Keep an eye on this band — it’s the real deal. The Royal Bangs open for Drummer and Other Girls at 9 p.m. at the Beachland Ballroom (15711 Waterloo Rd., 216.383.1124, beachlandballroom.com). Tickets: $10. — Ernest Barteldes
