Sugar Coma, DSTVV, and Morning Hands 

A punk show and Courtney Love costume contest.

Valentine’s Day can bring out all sorts of neuroses in people who aren’t secure in their relationship statuses — which is why Sgraffito Gallery in Emeryville is hosting a show billed as a “Post V-Day Cry Fest” for those that have reason to gripe about last week’s couples-centric holiday. The lineup includes the new Hole cover band Sugar Coma, featuring Candace Lazarou (the frontwoman of the abrasive, avant-garde rock band Mansion) and members of well-regarded, local punk bands Violence Creeps and The World. DSTVV, an Oakland band whose static-laden compositions contain strains of grunge, shoegaze, and noise, joins Sugar Coma on the bill. Morning Hands, a synth-pop off-shoot of Oakland EBM group Diesel Dudes, will provide a washed-out, mellow counterpoint to the other bands’ more aggressive sound. The show will include a Courtney Love costume contest, so don’t forget your smudged eyeliner, vintage negligees, fishnets, and combat boots.
