8 p.m., Maxine's. $5. 21 and over.
The biggest names in the festival close it out. Sissy Wish
is spritely, big-beat, synth-pop from Norway. Ezra Furman and the Harpoons
released one of last year's best-reviewed folk pop albums. Think
Violent Femmes-style mewing and Clem Snide-style lyrics of earnest
irony. Th' Legendary Shack*Shakers
features one of the great
front men in popular music, Colonel J.D. Wilkes. Expect him to be
shirtless and convulsive and to sing with the microphone in his mouth.
prominently lean on punkabilly, but their sound encompasses all of the traditional Southern genres.
