Better Than: Taco Tuesday at a norm bar.

To Weirds or not to Weirds? That is the question. The answer, of course, is ... To Weirds.

Last night at Churchill's Pub, South Florida's premiere freeform music showcase held its third annual summer blowout. Check out the highlights after the jump.

This Heart Electric!

This Heart Electric
Though the event's name might imply a consistently freakadelicized lineup, The Night of Weirds doesn't rely exclusively on the avant-garde. In fact, many times the "weirdness" in question isn't even about individually strange acts. Instead, a sense of the "weird" is caused by the cumulative experience of a supereclectic concert. So fittingly enough, This Heart Electric -- featuring Ricardo Guerrero on acoustic and Dino Felipe manning percussion -- opened the proceedings with breezy, beach party hazers that recalled a more attractive, better dressed Violent Femmes.

Luma Junger!

The night's rock music prologue continued with Luma Junger, the Internet's favorite band.

Ed Wilcox!

Ed Wilcox
Cult free-jazz percussionist Ed Wilcox played at the very first Night of Weirds five years ago. And last night, he did a thorough job of justifying the night's namesake. His psychedelic style (free improv unfolding like a multidirectional, multidimensional plane rather than a linear succession of beats) paired with soulful, somewhat eerie crooning recalled a minimalist Captain Beefheart.

Rose Quartz!

Rose Quartz
Formerly No Milk and Ant Parade, Rose Quartz traveled from Tampa and commanded the audience's attention with pulsing, ethereal, ghost-lectro.

Mr. Feathers!
Mr. Feathers
On the other end of the spectrum, Mr. Feathers and the rest of the Creature Tweaker Council had the Churchill's back patio on lockdown. Anyone sick of the rock 'n' roll and/or freak shit inside the main room could find shelter at this mutant e-music satellite show.
