Friday To-Do: Ghostfinger



10 p.m., Juanita's. $15.

Sounding like “Midnight Mile” Rolling Stones one minute and a rootsy Smashing Pumpkins the next, Lucero's poppier compadres, Ghostfinger, have developed a reputation around these parts for their eclectic, manic live shows and attention-deficit twist on Tennessee alt-country. Led by a frenzied, mustachioed Richie Kirkpatrick (named Nashville's best front man of 2007), they're a three-piece that doesn't hesitate to bounce back and forth from post-punk to anti-folk to straight-up metal. For a taste of their peculiar twist on the ordinary, dial up their unbelievable, Auto-Tuned cover of Fleetwood Mac's “Landslide” on YouTube. Drunken Angels and Brother Andy and His Big Damn Mouth open the 18-plus concert.
