If that weren’t enough garage rock for you, there’s an added bonus that Maloney didn’t mention: Long-thought-defunct Memphis blues punks The Neckbones are opening the gig. Aside from being rad lo-fi fuzz thrashers with songs like “Crack Whore Blues” and “Art School Dropout,” The Neckbones have the distinction of being the first-ever band of white dudes on Fat Possum — sharing stages with Mississippi bluesmen like R. L. Burnside and T-Model Ford long before The Black Keys blipped onto the radar.
The Neckbones don’t play a whole hell of a lot these days (they all have jobs and families, as people do), so — unless you plan on hitting either our birthday party or The Clean's show — I wouldn’t sleep on this gig. Especially if your jam is vintage garage rock with a heavy dose of The Buzzcocks. And why the hell wouldn’t it be?
Peep some live videos of The Neckbones wearing shirts they stole from The Woggles’ van after the jump. Tonight’s show is at 9 p.m. and will cost you a 10 spot to get in.
