Fucking Boneshakers, Forever, Shannon & the Clams, Action Finger, Percolator Soundboard Recommended

When: Tue., Oct. 28, 9 p.m. 2008

In the “fart for fart’s sake” subset of the garage-rock scene, Bay Area bands are leading the charge. Like Nobunny and Personal & the Pizzas, Shannon & the Clams are all about the fun of playing in a band, not about “making it” or “rehearsing”—they’ll never harsh your buzz by reaching for the brass ring of indie crossover appeal. What separates Shannon & the Clams from their beach-party buddies is the fuzzed-out soul they bring to the trash-prom aesthetic. They sound sort of like Mary Weiss of the Shangri-Las fronting King Uszniewicz & the Uszniewicztones—the band Cub Koda and the Brownsville Station road crew pretended to be when they traded instruments in the studio and cut some great primitive surf rock. Tonight’s bill, headliner first, is The Fucking Boneshakers, Forever, Shannon & the Clams, Action Finger, and Percolator. —Brian Costello
