Sun., Sept. 22, Beer Dawgs
Swabbies Restaurant & Bar, 3 p.m., $10
From 1986 to 2006, the Beer Dawgs rocked Sacramento five nights a week with its original bluesy swamp rock, released 10 albums and could regularly be heard performing at Hogshead Brew Pub in Old Sacramento. The Dawgs, founded by Bob Pearce and Steve Wall, earned its entrance into the Sacramento Area Music Awards Hall of Fame in 1996 and released its “final” album, Voodoo & Tattoo, in 2006. For the past seven years, the guys, including longtime members Otis Mourning and Dave Oppedal, have reunited to perform mostly original music like “Snake Bit,” “Gator Circus” or “Jose Grand Marnier and the Ju Ju Queen,” and a few Dawg-styled covers. 5871 Garden Highway, https://myspace.com/beerdawgs.
