GREG GINN'S JAMBANG
9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.

Greg Ginn may be best known for leading the hardcore punk brigade Black Flag, which he founded and fronted from 1976 to 1986, but in no way whatsoever has he faded into obscurity. He's still running SST, the legendary punk label that's released seminal albums by everyone from the Minutemen to Sonic Youth, and he said recently that he still performs about six nights a week. Henry Rollins has said that Ginn's playing is comparable to free-form jazz sax players such as Ornette Coleman and Eric Dolphy. As for other accolades, Ginn made it to 99th on Rolling Stone's list of “The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time,” and is currently mastermind of JamBang, an audio/visual experience that offers a hybrid of electronic and organic instrumentation that sits on the outskirts of traditional musical realms. Supporting this tour will be the Taylor Texas Corrugators, Ginn's Western swing/jazz/blues project that just released its second album, “Goof Off Experts.”
