Saturday To-Do: Sugar and the Raw

SUGAR AND THE RAW
9:30 p.m., Juanita's. $8.

Several years back, the kids couldn't get enough of Sugar and the Raw (who were long Sugar in the Raw before a threatening letter from the sugar giant inspired the change). The seven-piece started out funk-rock (if memory serves, Justin Collins spent several years banging a tambourine and dancing maniacally) before gradually evolving into breezy Southern pop. Their arc followed a locally typical path: Max Recordings put out a debut, the band tried to tour with mixed success, the band recorded a follow-up, but before the band had a chance to put it out, things fizzled. The spirit of the group's been kept alive in the bands that emerged in SATR's wake — Big Boots and the Winter Furs. But absence makes the heart long for a new gig, and now, for the first time in almost two years, the group's reforming to celebrate the release, on Max Recordings, of its lost second album, aptly titled “The Reunion Show.” Labelmates and longtime supporters Grand Serenade open the show. The cover charge includes a copy of the CD.
