The Arlington-via-Harrisonburg, Va., quartet Gefilte Fish is all about punk rock. Guitarist Dave Nesmith hails from the frighteningly metal Men’s Recovery Project. Bassist (and Washington City Paper classified assistant) Amy Domingues, also a classically trained cellist, likewise opted for an edgier sound. And they’ve got the DIY ethic down pat. The songs on Gefilte Fish’s untitled and self-produced cassette hark back to the days before Dischord’s respectable roster jumped ship for the majors. With Rachel’s (whose latest The Sea and the Bells features Chicago indie producer Bob Weston on trumpet and bass) and Rex at 8:30 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1831 14th St. NW. $8. (202) 667-7960.
