Shakedown stages punkabilly badasses Jason & the Punknecks.
The Nashville act is the self-proclaimed “most dangerous band in bluegrass,” and they’re here to lay out their latest, Drinkin’, Druggin’, and Jesus. Have mercy.... Canuck art punks Fucked Up hit Casbah with Trash Talk. Will Crain “Of Note”d that one for ya.... Portland synth kids Susan Subtract and Ivy Slime, aka Branes (sic), enlighten Soda Bar...Get Back Loretta keyboardist Kevin Martin sets up a CD-release at Bar Pink with Gayle Skidmore in support...that cello-shreddin’ singer-songer Ben Sollee’s at Belly Up behind this year’s “celebration of all things electrified,” Inclusions...and Indigo Girls play Humphrey’s by the Bay. I only mention this so I can tell you that I once won a million dollars from a drunk lady who insisted that Melissa Etheridge was an Indigo Girl. Easy money.
