Aug. 29: Hot August Rockabilly Roadhouse at Hopmonk Tavern

Whip out the fedora, grease back the hair, strap on the leather pumps and tune up the hot-rod, when the KRSH presents the Hot August Rockabilly Roadhouse. For all fans of that singular breed of retro rock and old-timey tunes, the Blasters along with standup bassist Lee Rocker are here to provide some jams worthy of rug-cutting. The Blasters draw influence from such rock ’n’ roll grand masters as Carl Perkins, Big Joe Turner, Howlin’ Wolf and James Brown. Lee Rocker, an original member of the Stray Cats, plays a mean slap bass that can swing from classic Americana to fist-pumping rock. Big Dave, host of KRSH’s weekly Rockabilly Roadhouse broadcast, provides his big persona to host the live performance. Dig it on Saturday, Aug. 29, at the Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave. Sebastopol. 9pm. $25. 707.829.7300.Daniel Hirsh
