H09099 (New Jersey) took local concertgoers by surprise last summer with an incendiary live performance that TLU's Bao Le-Huu characterized as "pure detonation."

So of course when a return engagement was announced there was a fair amount of anticipation. However, the band kept fans in suspense with a Facebook event page with no location, just a deadpan note to "Ask A Punk."

All punks have apparently been queried, because word is out that tonight's show will be in an apparently new venue dubbed Blackstar that is in the old Hoops space on Amelia.

Ho99o9 play the newly minted Blackstar (gutsy naming gambit there) tonight at 8 p.m.with Injury Reserve and J.A.S.O.N. Tickets are $10.
