Sat., June 08, Secret Lives of Squirrels
Fox & Goose, 9 p.m., $5
So what do squirrels do in their private lives? Don't ask the members of the Secret Lives of Squirrels—they don't actually know anything about the animals. Then why did they pick such an odd name to describe what is actually quite a straightforward rock trio? Who knows, and the band rocks, so who cares? Its breed of rock is heavily roots-oriented, kind of like a down-and-dirty country-blues-rock band, usually maintaining itself at a grimy midtempo beat. It's perfect drinking music—and quite well-written, too. This Friday the SLS celebrates the release of a debut album, Fight My Wars. 1001 R Street, www.facebook.com/squirrelrock.
