Eight Gigs: Acrylics
Sun., Aug. 16, 7 p.m., The Colony, $5
Santa Rosa's Acrylics played with Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine and brought down the house with their raucous brand of sloppy, angst-driven punk. Although they describe themselves as “Not That Shitty East Coast Band,” it's fairly obvious a proper introduction is needed. If you're a fan of Victims Family (yes, no apostrophe), Alice Donut, Sonic Youth or the Butthole Surfers in their heyday, this band is not to be missed. If you're still buzzing from drinking too much coffee on a Sunday afternoon, the only logical play is to continue the party so you're miserable at your shitty job on Monday. 3512 Stockton Boulevard, www.facebook.com/acrylicsfreekpunk.
