Fri., Dec. 28, Frank Jordan
Blue Lamp, 9 p.m., $8
Frank Jordan is a band that you either know and love or don't know and should. Either way, it's been six years since this group has performed, and it's reuniting for a special concert with guests Springs and SexRat. F.J.'s Mike Visser (vocals and guitar) is also releasing his debut solo album with his new project, the aforementioned Springs. Devin Hurley (drums) will perform with SexRat, and rounding out Frank Jordan are Matt Ontjes (bass) and Chris Watson (horns). These guys play great, solid rock fused with a bit of jazz, blues and a whole lot of unique sound. This is a 21-and-over show, so bring that ID. 1400 Alhambra Boulevard, http://tinyurl.com/frankjordan.
