Won’t knock it off
Whether or not you’re a fan of the raucous bunch of hoodlums known as the Knockoffs, you have to give vocalist Tom Hutchinson props for keeping the moniker alive for (gasp!) 13 years. Since 1993, the band has been a revolving door for some of our greatest local musicians. Kevin Seconds (7Seconds), Wendy Powell (the Skirts), Dean Seavers (the Decibels and the X-Teens), Bobby Jordan (Mr. T Experience and Red Star Memorial)—no other local band has featured such a cornucopia of musical talent. The current incarnation features Danny Secretion and Mickie Rat from the Secretions, along with Bear Williams on drums and backing vocals. If songs like “No Time” or “Everybody Knows” don’t incite a few random acts of stupidity, you must not be listening. Also on the bill are local legends the Helper Monkeys, direct descendents of the sadly defunct Panda Bear Greens. The bands play Old Ironsides, located at 1901 10th Street, on Thursday, March 30, with San Diego’s all-girl punk band the Glossines. The show starts at 9 p.m., and the cover charge is $7. Alas, it’s 21 and over.
