June 24. Things looked bleak for the Capital Region when its beloved rock 'n' roll shrine Valentine's was forced to close earlier this year. But the mood has taken a decidedly upbeat turn since that hallowed venue's owners opened the Low Beat, which has thus far gotten across-the-board raves. Among the new club's standout bookings for June is this one by veteran Indianapolis punk unit Sloppy Seconds, whose Ramones-rooted attack and cartoonish lyrics encompassing "pornography, classic horror movies, classic television shows, comic books, alcohol, being fat, and getting drunk" most certainly assure an evening of high-quality entertainment. With Sugareater and Knyghts of Fuzz. (Wreckless Eric checks in June 14; Snowmine drifts by June 22.) 7pm. $10. Albany. (518) 432-6572; Thelowbeat.com.
