South Lake Tahoe bar to hold punk rock showcase
If you go
What: Punk rock showcase
When: 9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20
Where: Whiskey Dick’s Saloon
South Lake Tahoe’s Whiskey Dick’s Saloon will host a night of punk rock Saturday.
The Convulsionaries, which plays “1970s style proto-punk/glitter-glam,” headlines the show. The band’s “amazingly mediocre freak show” began in January 2014 and draws influence from Iggy Pop, Wire, Voltaire, T.Rex, the Residents, Velvet Underground, the New York Dolls, the Sweet, the Dictators, Adam Ant, Suicide, Devo, David Bowie, GOB, the Sonics, the Modern Lovers, Mr. B, the Gentleman Rhymer, Bauhaus, Swingin’ Utters, Mott the Hoople and the Damned.
The band is known to rock face paint, masks and assorted costumes during their performances.
“Their mission is to revolutionize the global Freak Show disposition, influence the human race to begin firing on the fifth through eighth neural circuits, and to entertain everyone with an ear to hear,” according to the group’s online biography.
Also on Saturday’s bill are South Lake Tahoe’s South Shore Riot, San Francisco’s Lethal Gospel and Monterey’s Psychos in Love.
South Shore Riot plays, simply, “old school punk.”
Entrance to the show is $5. Doors are set to open at 9 p.m.
Tahoe Blue Vodka drink specials will be offered at the show.
Whiskey Dick’s Saloon is located at 2660 Lake Tahoe Blvd.
