The UK's Lily Allen hit center stage at The Great American Music Hall last night. With her song "Alright, Still" debuting at number 20 on Billboard's Hot 100, a string of ensuing award nominations and "Smile" hitting the top of the UK singles charts, the 21-year-old pop singer-songwriter has many in the music world taking notice.

Los Angeles band Moving Units played last Thursday at Café du Nord with The Deadly Syndrome and Test Your Reflex.

According to "The Units should appeal to anyone who loves Gang of Four, A Certain Ratio, or The Pop Group, but don't think of their music as rote recitation of bygone styles; not only is the band tight as hell, but their tightly wound, minimal, paranoid take on punk feels fully appropriate for these nerve-racking times. What's more, you can dance to it."
