BLOODLESS COOTIES
9 p.m. Stickyz. $6.

There are far, far too many bands out there that decide on a name, write a handful of songs and then release their debut album or EP approximately 30 minutes after their first practice.

Not The Bloodless Cooties. This Dogtown crew has been honing its off-kilter racket off and on for 20 years, gleefully rampaging through the history of rock 'n' roll like a screaming drunk dude in a record shop, stumbling all over the place and sweating and bleeding all over the rare garage rock 45s.

The trio is made up of father-son duo Jerry and Jeremy Colburn on drums and guitar, respectively, and bassist Louisa Rook. The Colburns were also in Psychotic Car Woman and Jerry does solo and experimental music under the banners of Herding Kittens and Empty Boat People. Rook played guitar for my all-time favorite Little Rock band, The Stranger Steals.

The Cooties mostly play cover tunes, ranging from '60s pop hits to '50s country weepers to rockabilly rave-ups to garage-psych classics to obscure numbers from the oddest of oddball outsiders. While it took 20 years to arrive, this album-release show will no doubt prove to have been worth the wait. Oh yeah, the cover art for the album was created by none other than Raymond Pettibon, who created some of the most iconic punk album covers ever for the likes of Black Flag, Minutemen and Sonic Youth. Pretty awesome.

Brother Andy & His Big Damn Mouth open this 18-and-older show, and Selector Fast Weapons helms the steel wheels to crank out the jams.

    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.
