There's a lot of great music happening Thursday evening—and George Clinton is just the start. At Flicker, Hope for Agoldensummer will play an increasingly rare hometown gig, the band's last of the season before member Page Campbell heads back to her current home of Madison, WI. Opening the show are Nashville's Loney John Hutchins and locals Sea of Dogs, whose sublime folk is worth the $5 ticket price alone.
At the Melting Point, singer-songwriter Grant-Lee Phillips (hyphen), of '90s alt-rockers Grant Lee Buffalo (no hyphen) will perform a set of tunes from his most recent LP, Walking in the Green Corn. Modern Skirts frontman Jay Gulley opens.
And at Caledonia, Miami's Jacuzzi Boys (who's from Miami these days?) will "do it raw, fast and loud," according to Flagpole writer Christopher Joshua Benton's sexxxy calendar pick. The Rodney Kings and Koko Beware round out a night of raucous, garagey fun-times. And who doesn't love those?
