OFF is set to scare the fuck out of you tonight

Hammy comedian-actor Jack Black tears an organ of some kind (a heart? balls?) out of another man's body in OFF's recent video for "Wrong." It's a bloody scene and an appropriate prelude to the band's show here in Kansas City, which falls on Halloween. That's tonight! OFF is a group of middle-aged vets from old hardcore bands — Keith Morris (Circle Jerks, Black Flag), Dimitri Coats (Burning Brides), Steven Shane McDonald (Redd Kross) and Mario Rubalcaba (Rocket From the Crypt, Hot Snakes) — but sounds far more vital than some dime-store nostalgia act. Which is to say, they are still roaring loud and pissed as hell. OFF's self-titled debut, released back in the spring, has an almost perverse immediacy: It's 16 songs in 16 minutes. Some of the songs are only 45 seconds long.

OFF. Wednesday, October 31, at RecordBar.
