Have you seen that show Sons of Anarchy
? Ron Perlman and that hot blond guy? Katey Sagal from Married With Children? It's not that great, although compelling enough as an escapist-evening-soap-opera kinda thing. Anyway, L.A.-based band Jeff Crosby & The Refugees
have two songs featured in upcoming episodes. The band is also opening for Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons
and playing with The Heavy Guilt
at Hum Brews
. Tickets are $15, show is 21-and-over, and things get going around 9 p.m. A 7 on the low-risk-sure-I'll-have-the-wings-as-usual meter.
Yogoman Burning Band
, possibly Humboldt's most beloved non-Humboldt band, drops into the Jambalaya
. It's fun! It's energetic! It's ridiculous! The only people not having fun at a Yogoman show are, well, nonexistent! Tickets are $12 — get'em in advance — and show starts at 9 p.m. with Free Rain's post-rock/analog funk. A 10 on the never-take-yourself-too-seriously meter.
But wait! That's not all! You also get a special all-ages family show on Sunday at 1 p.m. Yeah! This one is $10 and, be warned, will be packed with tiny people full of unflagging energy. A 10 on the ecstatic-grateful-exhausted-parents meter.
San Diego's Earthless
features members of Rocket From the Crypt, OFF! and Howlin' Rain, which means the band's cosmic jams are as heavy and juicy as you'd expect. Along with fellow San Diegans and shred rockers Joy
, Earthless gets stoner spacey at the Alibi. Depart this planet for a mere $5. Music starts late, go early and have drinks. Show's 21-and-over. A 9 on the I'm-40-not-dead meter.
