Giving you the music a day early:
Ty Segall is/was a member of several bands and also is a solo musician, usually playing a raw rock that recalls bands such as Stooges and the like. It’s kick-ass rock driven by ’60s-guitar rock and the stomp of punk. His newest work is titled Hair, an eight-song sonic blast that defies categorization. Joining Segall for a date at White Water Tavern will be White Fence, the blown-speaker garage rock of Tim Presley who recorded Hair with Segall, and The Useless Eaters, the Nashville, Tenn., full-on rock of Seth Sutton and band. It’s an all-ages show that starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10.
It has been almost five years since New Orleans heavy metal act Down has released new material. Well, that’s all about to change as the supergroup (members are in or were in groups such as Crowbar, Corrosion of Conformity, EyeHateGod and Pantera) is preparing for the release of four EPs during the next few years, and the first one — a six-tune EP — is coming later this summer. New and old tunes will be delivered with a crushing blow when the band visits Juanita’s. The doors open at 8 p.m. with general admission tickets $25. The music starts at 9 p.m.
Who thought an artist would create reggae, surf and ska music in Pennsylvania? Well, that’s exactly where Mike Pinto started. Of course, now Pinto is in San Diego, and now it’s the Mike Pinto Band — Pinto on guitar and vocals along with bassist Matt Brein and drummer Todd Elrod — that is creating grooving Southern California music influenced by roots, reggae, ska and surf, and it’s the Mike Pinto Band that visits Stickyz. The opening act is Three Legged Fox, a band that strangely is also a reggae band from Pennsylvania. The music starts at 9 p.m. with tickets for the all-ages show $8 in advance and $10 day of.
