Tuesday To-Do: Rock the Vote with Fishbone

FISHBONE
7 p.m., Revolution. $10.

Lest everyone forget the terror that would beset us if Mike Huckabee became president, the Rev Room is bringing back “Rock the Vote,” where rock 'n' rollers pull an old hide-the-medicine-in-the-ice-cream trick on unsuspecting youths and other apathetics: Hear the rock music, listen to why voting is important. The concert comes at exactly the one-year mark from when we'll go to the polls, and who better than Fishbone, the original ska-punk kings, to jar folks out of complacency? Led by the charismatic vocalist/saxophonist Angelo Moore, the L.A.-based outfit has been a cult favorite for nearly three decades, churning out a hyperactive, funky blend of ska that's as rooted in goofiness as it is in social commentary. Thoughtful local rapper Mad Trucker rhymes about robots and global conspiracies among other things. He opens with other acts to be announced.
