8 p.m. Monday, March 23. The Gargoyle, on the campus of Washington University at Forsyth and Skinker boulevards.



Brooklyn's Ninjasonik brings a frantic, basement-party vibe to the dance floor that feels like it could only be fueled by lethal amounts of caffeine and malt liquor. However, this party isn't for the prudish or uptight: McFly, Telli and Teenwolf aren't afraid to get filthy with their punk-meets-hip-hop party beats. Be ready for songs about hookups with art-school coeds, AIDS and the joys of wearing a pair of tight pants. By the time Ninjasonik's set is over, you'll be drenched in sweat and wondering if your best move is to laugh or be horribly offended. Cerebral Ballzy, Totally Michael, Team Robespierre and the Death Set are also on the bill.
