Quite the bill at The Cavern tonight as Vivian Girls, who Daniel Hopkins caught up with in this week's paper, stop through town for a gig that also features area favorites True Widow and The Uptown Bums.
If there's a common theme for the show, which kicks off at 10 o'clock, well, that'd be sludge, something featured in the sounds of all three of these acts--in Uptown Bums' retro-punk, in True Widow's dirge rock and in the headlining act's retro-pop.
So, yeah, it should be quite the show. And if you want in, we've got an extra pair of passes, courtesy of the show's promoter, Parade of Flesh. They could be yours--if you're the first person to shoot me an email right now with the words "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" in the subject line. Good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winner.
