Eight Gigs: Enuff Z'Nuff
Sun., Feb. 22, 6:30 p.m., The Boardwalk, $15
Enuff Z'Nuff has endured more heartache and misery than one band should ever be allowed. After getting dropped from two major labels—Atco and Arista—the band still forged on and continued to make great records worthy of any Cheap Trick fan's collection. Now a trio with bassist and vocalist Chip Z'Nuff being the sole original member (guitarist Derek Frigo, sadly, overdosed in 2004), the band is still delivering the goods. While their massive hit songs like “Fly High Michelle” and “New Thing” are phenomenal on their own, the band's catalog teems with many gems worthy of your ears (and eyes). Paradox Drive, Evolution Eden and Luv Glove open. 9426 Greenback Lane in Orangevale, www.enuffznuff.com.
