DEREK LYN PLASTIC makes his triumphant return to the stage with a whole new band behind him, playing a whole new crop of trashy post-punk dirge and sneer. Knife & the Fourth Ward Daggers also show off a new lineup for a set of '50s three-chord hoodlum anthems that are all about girls, having fun and causing trouble. Afterward, the Pillow Talk DJs will spin punk-rock records for as long as the law allows. $3. 9 p.m. 529, 529 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-228-6769. www.529atl.com.
