Aging punk-techno hybridist Mick Jones isn’t celebrating “E.” “Gimme ‘nother hit of Vitamin C,” he insists on the re-renamed Big Audio Dynamite‘s new F-Punk. Such practicality aside, B.A.D.’s latest lineup doesn’t sound all that doddering. Still, after listening to such otherwise agreeable tracks as the seven-minute “Psycho Wing,” it sometimes seems as if the only thing Jones knows about techno is that the songs can go on for a long time. At 7 p.m. at the Capitol Ballroom, 1015 Half St. SE. $8. (703) 549-7625. (Mark Jenkins)
