This is a good weekend for local music, as Phoenix faves Wooden Indian and Cherie Cherie storm Crescent Ballroom Friday night. It's the album release for Wooden Indian, and the band's twirling, psychedelic riffing provide a weighty counterbalance to Cherie Cherie's gothic surf-punk, while opener Where Are All the Buffalo? -- the nom de plume for singer-songwriter Kristina Moore, has an arresting voice capable of stopping a buffalo in its tracks. --David Accomazzo
