Around Hear: Paranoid Lovesick Reunion 

And more local music news

Paranoid Lovesick will play a reunion, farewell and double-CD release show Saturday, November 14. In the '90s, the power-pop band opened club shows for Oasis and Weezer, and their 1995 Molly EP broke into regular rotation on WENZ and WMMS.

Later, the band began work on an album with producer Bill Korecky at his Mars Recording in Streetsboro, but when guitarist Rick McBrien died in 2003, the group called it quits. They recently completed unfinished tracks with members of Columbus' Watershed and Pennsylvania's Jellybricks, who are also on the bill.

The show is part of the second night of the two-day International Pop Overthrow Weekend at the Beachland (15711 Waterloo Rd.) with seven acts each night. Other Cleveland artists in the fest's lineup include Bill Fox, Living Stereo, the Celebrity Pilots, Good Touch Bad Touch, Pale Hollow, Afternoon Naps and the Rainy Day Saints. Showtime each night is 8; tickets $10. Visit for a full schedule.

Ten years after their last gig, Studbull's Disco Biscuit are reuniting on Saturday, November 14, at the Hi-Fi Concert Club (11729 Detroit Ave., Lakewood). Scene wrote of the band's 1994 debut demo: "Lyrically, SDB come off like a sexually abusive, semi-retarded, feces-fixated version of the Beastie Boys." They later added nü-metal guitars and funk to the mix.

The sextet is playing the gig to debut a new, zombie-themed video for an old song, "Brains," from the band's second and final LP, 1998's Return of the Super Zeroes.

Explains co-frontman Trip — who's more recently been half of promotion team Trip and Fatbak — "I said, 'We got everybody together to pretend that we're playing — why don't we really play a show?'"

Opening bands are Half-Raised Heathens, Calo, At No End and Pursesnatcher. Doors at 7:00, $5 cover.

Demons Within release their full-length debut, Desecration of Angels, on Friday, November 13, at the Phantasy (11802 Detroit Ave., Lakewood). King, Necris Obscura, Befallen and Selvent open the metal massacre. Doors 8 p.m., cover $3.

Fistula will release We the Beast on Friday, November 13, at Annabell's (784 E. Market St., Akron). Jeff Shirilla (Abdullah) recorded the brutal sludge album, which features Nate Linehan of Massachusetts' Anal Cunt on drums. Doors 10 p.m., cover $5.
