The Lights Out, a local rock band with power-pop influences, has a CD release party tonight at Church. Based on a quick listen to a few of the songs on the new disc "!Heist!," it would seem that the band has spent some time listening to the Smithereens, which is never a bad thing. You can hear some of the new tracks at thelightsout.com. Joining the band tonight will be Johnny Nobody, Brian McGee & the Hollow Speed, and Aloud. 8 p.m. $8. Church Restaurant and Lounge, 69 Kilmarnock St., Boston, 617-236-7600. churchofboston.com
