Sat., Feb. 02, the Scouse Gits
Bows & Arrows, 8 p.m., $5
The Scouse Gits' band name is from a pretty obscure reference—a 1967 Monkees song called “Randy Scouse Git,” which is English slang for “horny guy from Liverpool.” The song is from the lesser-remembered, whacked-out, swinging London version of the group. But the Scouse Gits aren't quite psychedelic Monkees; they're more of a revved-up, garage-rock loving, Nuggets compilation-inspired rock ‘n' roll band. Only they play music really fast—and with more adrenaline than anyone predating the punk-rock movement could have ever considered. And they do it donned in suave suits. 1815 19th Street, www.bowscollective.com.
