Buy this for a dollar
In an effort to make off nights a little more appealing, the Blue Lamp is hosting irregular $1 Monday nights. The cover just barely pays for the touring band and house expenses (sound and security) at full capacity, and local bands play gratis. This week’s show features a stellar lineup that includes Sonic Love Affair; the Biters (featuring Jackpot’s Rusty Miller); the Dweebz; and Detroit’s Demolition Doll Rods, who are touring in support of their new Swami Records release, There Is a Difference. If you enjoy the White Stripes’ Sympathy for the Record Industry-era material, the Stooges or Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, odds are you already own one of the Demolition Doll Rods’ releases. If not, their latest should whet your appetite for filthy, down and dirty rock ’n’ roll. Steal four quarters from your piggy bank for admission this Monday at 7:30 p.m. and don’t forget your beer money. The Blue Lamp can be found at 1400 Alhambra Boulevard and at www.bluelamp.com.
