You have to go there to see what they have listed but even that isn't all they are going to have....if you get my drift
....but they do say it will "feature a one-time-only set from The Shirt Lifters, a band featuring members of Spitzz
and The Tampoffs backing an all-star roster of guest vocalists from bands
like Unnatural Axe and Bullet Lavolta playing covers of the punk rock classics you've been hearing on the LR
C since 1977".
....They also have Cocked n' Loaded
doing heavier stuff like Motorhead and Turbo Negro. On the air that week they
will be playing one decade of punk each half hour. Downstairs in Moe's Lounge,
Artie Friedman will screen old local videos and perhaps a screening of
the LRC documentary. Cover charge is only $5...which includes 2 FREE Narragansetts. Must we...can we go on?
