Scene stalwart and Alibi contributing writer Captain America’s Garage & Wax series celebrates its eighth iteration at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) on Friday, Aug. 16. G&W Vol. VIII takes a turn for the twang with performances by hell-raising country trio Sin Serenade, Li’l Nessie & Her Tail Chasers (The Shadow Men fronted by Nessa Grande), fiddle/banjo duo Blue Rose Ramblers and Alonerly, Antonia Montoya’s solo project. Poor Boy, the Huron Valley Listening Club and America himself start spinning hot wax at 8 p.m., and the live music kicks off at 9:30 p.m. Admission to this 21-and-over barn dance is only $5.
