NASHVILLE PUSSY
8 p.m. Juanita's. $12 adv., $15 door.

Nashville Pussy first started gaining notoriety back in the mid '90s via the bleary, Xeroxed pages of various seedy punk rock fanzines.

At the time, the band felt like a necessary corrective to the stilted, over-the-top PC atmosphere prevalent in many quarters of underground music. I had the pleasure and privilege of playing drums in a band that opened up for Nashville Pussy back in 2000, and let me tell you, as far as onslaughts of pure, raging, hedonistic rock excess go, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more raging, hedonistic, excessive outfit.

The band hasn't really changed much since its 1998 debut "Let Them Eat Pussy" and it doesn't need to. Just like Angus Young said of AC/DC: "We've been accused of making the same album over and over 12 times. But it's a dirty lie. The truth is we've made the same album over and over 14 times!" The same applies to Nashville Pussy's Motorhead-meets-Skynyrd bruisers. When you've already found the perfect recipe, why tamper with success?

Joecephus opens the show.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
