Boasting a weirdly mesmerizing live show and a lengthy list of pun-filled albums with titles like Dung Shui, Chicken Pizza, That Which Does Not Rock and Apocalyptic Wind Blowing Soft Across the Southland, local trash-jam supergroup Dictatortots has followed its brash, boozy muse for 20 years now. Blending rumbling grunge with cheeky riffs and a decidedly un-PC lyrical approach, the group’s half-cocked rock is the epitome of Classic City strange. Its members celebrate the two-decade milestone with a throwdown at longtime local haunt Nowhere Bar Saturday evening.
DICTATORTOTS Longtime local chaos-cultivators trash the night with post-grunge grooves. 20th anniversary party! See Calendar Pick on p. 21.
