Droogie punks the Adicts visit House of Blues humpnight. The English septet’s been rolling in whiteface and bowlers with the same personnel since 1975. The best intro to the group remains 1981’s Songs of Praise, which was recently remastered and features punk-rock anthem “Viva La Revolution”.... Best of the rest: crust-punk quartet Venomous Concept (ex-Napalm Death and Brutal Truth) hit Brick by Brick with Poisoned Apple...Oakland garage-glam band Bare Wires electrocutes Bar Pink...Casbah stages L.A. alt-pop notables Sea of Cortez...and on the 30th anniversary of Bill Evans’s death, Dizzy’s downtown will host a tribute to the zen-jazz master, featuring pianist Tommy Gannon, Lori Bell on flutes, and Bob Magnusson on the upright. Evans was a genius and a junkie. His body quit at 51. The music still rings.
