Fire Escape weekend
Citrus Heights, CA 95610
Amb Pirate is this week’s 15 Minutes feature (see page 71), but I’m pretty sure she’d make me walk the plank if I didn’t mention four pretty cool rock and punk shows going down this weekend at her home venue, Fire Escape Bar and Grill at 7431 Madison Avenue in Citrus Heights. Dang—she must live a busy, crazy promoter life. I, however, am a simple guy, so I’m just going to list these shows in order:
This Thursday, November 11, is a metal all-ages show featuring Pierced From Within, Excruciator (from Oregon), Nuclear Wasteland plus a TBA band (6 p.m., $5, all ages, full bar with ID).
Friday, November 12: Alt-rock bands including South of Sunshine, Secure Sounds and the Luminous Empty (9 p.m., $6, 21 and over).
The big show: Track Fighter with Self Centered and In Deep (9 p.m., $8, 21 and over).
And for a post-Oakland Raiders victory show on Sunday, November 14: Puke and Spit (pictured above; this is their last show ever!), Machine City, Fuel the Change and Queen Alice (6 p.m., only $5, all ages).
Rumor has it if you go to all four shows, you get to ditch work on Monday.
