Hit by a Semi--Farewell Gig
Brick Works, Thursday, May 23, 8 p.m.

One of the best so-called “punkabilly” bands in town plays a farewell gig next Thursday night at the Brick Works, 191 East Second St., in downtown Chico. Driving off for blacker tarmac elsewhere is Hit by a Semi. It’s bound to be a great night of rock, as special guests for the evening are said to include members of Oddman, Inverted Nines, and local power pop kingpins Indecisive Youth! Admission is a mere $5 to this all-ages show. More info: (530) 895-7700;
