Tonight's Setlist: Dig Deep, Dance Hard, Goth Out (VIDEO)



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.

Plan the rest of your weekend and beyond with the full Setlist!
