SPLIT LIP RAYFIELD
9 p.m., Juanita's. $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.

Like a lot of thrash-grass bands, these guys are an affair straight from Dr. Frankenstein's jam room. Fine-tuned vocal cords from the Grand Old Opry, wild hair from CBGBs and flying fingers straight from the Sunset Strip. Their signature sound: fast, faster, rub some twang up in it, do it again. Sure, the guys have mellowed a bit since their beginnings in 1998, now taking their shot glass of moonshine technique back to a sloe gin fizz sway, but their innate, rural goofiness is still in the strings. They're coming off of a weekend's worth of daily Wakarusa gigs, so it's safe to expect spirits to be, well, high. Arkansas bluegrass fixtures The Crumbs — self-described as “drunkbilly, nastygrass” — kick off the night with their pure-grain, woodsy rumblings.
