The myth of rock music coming into glorious focus and triumph—the source of much satisfaction, on Saturday nights—is not just a myth propagated by Bob Dylan, Elton John, KISS and the Bay City Rollers. The rocanrol gets totally serious—if I’m to judge by the insouciant skeletons inhabiting poster I just saw—on Saturday night, Aug. 25 when Crushed!? hosts a record release and tour kickoff party at Sister (407 Central Ave. NW). As the hard rock scene in Burque has shifted into high gear these last three years, Crushed!? have been part of a new wave that have been crushing it, here and abroad. Thanks Orange Whip Records! Joining them for the fun—besides you, okay?—are local hard-charging, heartfelt heroes Rock Jong Il,Sleepy Hero and Shitty and the Terribles—who are really just the opposite, if you really think about it—open. 9pm • $5 • 21+.
