Eight Gigs: The Proclaimers
Mon., Oct. 17, 8 p.m., Harlow’s Restaurant & Nightclub, $22-$25
The Scottish duo that taught all of us the meaning of “haver” and the importance of walking 500 miles for the things we love comes to Harlow’s this Monday. That’s right, the Proclaimers continue the American leg of their seven-month world tour with a stop in Sacramento. Famous for their 1988 megahit “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles),” Craig and Charlie Reid appear to have an entire collection of energetic folk-rock, including their 2015 album, Let’s Hear it for the Dogs. Concertgoers can expect heaps of the infectious vitality and thick accents that first endeared the Proclaimers to the world some 30 years ago.
