The Show Report, 8/14: The Shin Kickers return


Tonight brings us the second helping of local Social Distortion tribute group The Shin Kickers, playing Lindberg’s in all their punk-meets-greaser glory. Their first appearance was to a packed room of onlookers in the spring as they played Social D’s live album Live at the Roxy, but tonight the band will take on a set list made up of the group’s latter-day material. We’re betting it includes this classic, plus more than a few other tunes instantly recognizable to fans.

Also happening in your music scene:

  • Black Box Revue with guest Trash Yourself at The Outland. The guest DJs from Oklahoma City are good friends with the BBR crew and should combine to take this party to a different level.
  • The Dropouts at Roadhouse Saloon. This weekend is you last and final chance to catch this awesome act before they take the rest of the year off to work on their various other projects including (for some of the guys) playing with The Osmonds.
  • Hidden Fever at The High Life Live Martini Lounge. We’ve heard GREAT things about these guys and they bring a crowd.
  • The Mystery Hour returns! The Skinny Improv’s late-night (think 10 p.m.) improv talk show hosted by Jeff Houghton returns for Season Four with guests Brad Noble, Allen Marsh and musical guest The Scribbles, a band made entirely of middle-schoolers that has been gaining some popularity lately despite the Bar-Ban-induced limitations in the rooms it can play.
  • Steve Smith & The Sneakers at Dennis’ Place
  • Berch and Daniel Potter at Nathan P. Murphy’s. There’s a bit of buzz developing around Berch after its recent shows, particularly in this same room a few weeks ago. The group opened then, but it’s back to headline tonight.
  • Oakhurst and The Hundred Hand String Band at Patton Alley Pub
  • The Full Moon Band at Classics inside the Clarion Hotel
  • Zenith Farm with Theorists, Price of Wood, and Lucifer Angel at Billiards
