Frankie and the Witch Fingers
Tue. Nov. 21 | Paging 2047's Ponderosa Stomp headliner: Los Angeles foursome Frankie and the Witch Fingers clamps jumper cables from flashback psychedelic pop to futuristic garage rock on the new Brain Telephone (Permanent), turning a junkyard lemon into electric lemonade. The Painted Hands and Loudness War open at 8 p.m. at Santos Bar.


Thu. Nov. 23 | Audiences everywhere continue to drop whatever they're doing as soon as they hear "Cash Money Records taking over for the '99 and the 2000." Juvenile celebrates the upcoming anniversary of his landmark 1998 album 400 Degreez, starring breakthrough singles "Ha" and "Back That Azz Up," by performing the album in its entirety at 10 p.m. at The Howlin' Wolf.
