You need some goddamn good honky-tonk on a Monday night, yes, you do. Which is why you're going to suck it up and go out and see Flint, Mich. native Whitey Morgan and the 78's
at Humboldt Brews. Tickets are $10, the outlaw twang starts at 9 p.m. and yes, 21-and-over. Check it:
Wait. What? Two serious shows on a Monday night? Oh, Humboldt. The way things work out.
All right, here we go. Over at the Shanty, you've got Memphis' Ex-Cult
riffing some punk like it's 1982 and they're in the garage next door, plus Zig Zags
, similarly inclined but out of El Lay, local trippers White Manna
and A-town's superchill TxExDx
. Show starts at 9 p.m. and cover's $5. It's the Shanty — be of legal drinking age.
