Thee Fine Lines puts the “rah!” in “rock ’n’ roll”
Thee Fine Lines puts the “rah!” in “rock ’n’ roll”

Monday, Feb. 20, Burt's Tiki Lounge (21-and-over); free: Attention all Modsters and air-guitar-enthusiasts: Your rock 'n' roll fantasy has arrived. Springfield, Mo.'s Thee Fine Lines might look a bit bookish, but rest assured, they'll have you spilling your beer in awe as they drag you into a dirt- and piss-filled gutter of three-chord, louder-than-hell rock 'n' roll. Take "Louie Louie" and the Go-Go's "We Got the Beat," add distorted vocals and a healthy dose of youthful anger and you've got all the ammunition you need to wake up with six stitches above your right eye.

Thee Fine Lines played their first gig on Halloween in 2001 and have since signed with indie label Weerock records. They recently visited Albuquerque as the opening act for Channing Cope in the summer of '05. On Monday, they return to the Duke City as the headlining act, along with The Cherry Tempo and Shapes and Sizes for a cover charge-free music event at Burt's Tiki Lounge.
