Lil Indies capitalizes on Mills 50’s title as the Punkest of the Main Street Districts by bringing in DJ Smilin’ Dan for a night. Dan’ll be spinning punk gems from the ’70s and ’80s, along with “punk” jams from the ’90s, in order to press the nostalgia button on every pushing-40 semi-professional who likes to talk about the ’96 Warped Tour lineup (the only year Rocket From the Crypt was on the bill).

10 p.m. Saturday; Lil Indies, 1036 N. Mills Ave.; free;
