Izzy & the Catastrophics, Paint Fumes, Bloodshot Bill

When: Thu., July 5, 10 p.m. 2012

What a wicked triple bill: The Catastrophics play theatrically swinging jazz and rock, suggesting a less cheesy, more vigorous version of Buster Poindexter. Izzy Zaldman, who doubles as Wayne Hancock's guitarist, leads them; his sly wit's apparent in the Elvis-style rockabilly of "Load Bearing Woman." Speaking of the King, one-man band Bloodshot Bill channels the mannered delivery, whiplash sway and anxious howl of his early Sun Record hits. A frequent Elvisfest guest, Bill's one hell of a performer. Last but not least are Paint Fumes, a noisy garage-punk act whose first release sounds like maybe they should open up some windows before there's permanent damage—in the best way, that is. $5/10 p.m. —Chris Parker

Price: $5
