Jul. 20, 2011 - Issue #822: CASH IN!
Manraygun / Sat, Jul 23 (4 pm) If a band has managed to capture the sounds of Springsteen and the Clash, while infusing them with New York art punk, the group is worth admiring. Admire them. (Empress Ale House, Free)
Cars & Guitars / Wed, Jul 20 – Sun Jul 24 To coincide with the loudest race in town, Edmonton's Indy presents four different shows that cleverly merge cars and their natural counterpart, guitars. Beaver Hills Park, Rice Howard Way, the Yellowhead Brewery and the Roxy Theatre host rootsy and loud rockers including: the Twisters, Lee Rocker of the Stray Cats, Los Straightjackets, the Raygun Cowboys, Jaydee Bixby and more. Be sure to check out raceweek.ca for schedules. (Various venues, various Costs)
The Vibrators / Tue, Jul 26 (7 pm) The Vibrators are so legendary that the band has toured with Iggy & the Stooges. This probably gives them rock cred. And if that doesn't convince you, the Vibrators' first release—Pure Mania—is considered one of the best punk albums of all time. Not bad. (New City Legion, $16)
Elizabeth / Sat, Jul 23 (8 pm) Full of a sound usually reserved for British popsters, cunningly combined with punk-rock undertones and energetic, hook-filled tempos, Vancouver's Elizabeth celebrates the April release of Hazards, Horrors and Liabilities. (Wunderbar, $10)
River City Revue / Sat, Jul 23 (8:30 pm) Join Edmonton’s latest burlesque troupe doing their artistic thing—which should be memorable to say the least. Joining the party is Molly Rose, Kiki Quinn, Gigi Vega, Zorra Adora, Harmonee Sweet, Ava Lively, Coco Cerise, Rexy Belle, host Paul Bezaire and local funkers, the Boogie Patrol.
