When's the last time you went to the Digger? Exactly. What a perfect opportunity to head out to the Clam Beach Inn — with your designated driver, natch — and witness Humboldt skate rockers Imperial Destructo
, the punk-blues (emphasis on punk) stylings of Nebraska's Saint Christopher
and the dirty folk of Montana's Whiskey Hooves
(see video above). I'm guessing the show's got a $3 cover and a 9 p.m.-ish start time, and am positive it's 21-and-over.
Maybe loud, dirty punk rock is not your thing. Maybe you'd like to shake your booty, which is just another way to stick it to the man, amirite? (For a long time, I thought the line was, "Free your mind and your ass will follow.") The Jambalaya hosts a free dance throwdown with Humboldt Roller Derby DJ King Maxwell
and Soul Night vet Jay Morg
emphasizing 1970s breakbeats, degenerate disco stunners and bass-heavy boogie tunes. You may start looking for some hot love around 9:30 p.m.
What if you want more temperate than revolutionary punk, but more somber than disco madness? The Alibi's offering the Shrouds & Shadows Tour 2014
, a sweet lineup of post-punk cover bands. To wit: Dead Souls
(a tribute to Joy Division
), plus The Reptile House
(a tribute to The Sisters of Mercy
), plus Spellbound
(a tribute to Siouxsie and the Banshees
). Cover is $7, music starts around 11 p.m., 21-and-over.
