Washington, D.C./Baltimore-area glitch-hop trio Food for Animals performs at 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, with Gowanus Bay Funeral Marching Band and Snack Truck at the Velvet Lounge, 915 U St. NW. $6. (202) 462-3213. Tonight’s show is the first of a three-performance weekend celebrating the upcoming release of the band’s second debut full-length, Belly, which is to be released on the Baltimore-based HOSS Records label.

Not making an appearance at tonight’s CD release show, however, will be any actual copies of Belly. According to lead rapper Andrew Field-Pickering (aka Vulture Voltaire, aka Maximillion Dunbar), the discs are more than a month overdue from the manufacturing plant. “They should, humorously enough, get here the day after the release shows,” he says.
