The Palm Lounge in the Eureka Inn has a shapeshifting ambience. On an early or an off night, it has an eerie Bardo-esque waiting room of the dead feel; a comforting dreamland where neither the void nor human existence can touch you — low ceilings and a snazzy bar! On a busy night or with a live music act, it transforms into a gallery of oddness, like a lost generation party at the Overlook Hotel if it had a progressive view toward LSD micro-dosing back then. How will the room feel during a punk show? Come find out tonight at 8 p.m. when a local trio of loud bands, Dead Drift, Clam Hammer and Imperial Destructo rock the Casbah (price TBA).
