There's so much good music happening this week that we actually ran out of space talking about it. Here are the *secret* music events that didn't get into the paper this week.
Shooter Jennings at the Sunshine Theatre, Thursday, August 11.
Shooter is a real bad ass. He's the son of iconic country legend Waylon Jennings, a living stylistic hybrid of Nashville, Los Angeles and New York City. He is, quite possibly, the savior of modern country music. 7 p.m. I think tickets are 10 bucks through Ticketmaster.
Mecca Records & Books Parking Lot Sale! Saturday, August 13 and Sunday, August 14.
Armloads—nay—boatloads of used records will be available for your perusing pleasure for 50 cents a piece. 50 cents a piece, people! Rocky's got the market cornered on obscure country and western vinyl, so you'll want to bring your saddlebag for this one. Plus, anything that's left over will be sold on Sunday at five for $1. That's from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., or until it starts raining.
The Knockout Pills at Burt's Tiki Lounge, Saturday, August 13.
These guys are like a slightly more spastic Ramones on speed pills. Bratty lyrics and high school hi-jinx by the bucketful—plus the completely local support of Ten Seconds To Liftoff, The Darlington Horns and The Bellmont! 10 p.m., bitches.
Moot Davis and the Cool Tones at the Launchpad, Sunday, August 14.
Former Dwight Yoakam guitarist Pete Anderson will share the stage with visionary honky-tonk balladeer Moot Davis. 8 p.m. Tickets at Natural Sound and Virtuous.com. Hoot for Moot!
