Begin in Flannel, then Remove the Sleeves

You are a rocker. And, rocker, today was crafted specially for you. From deep in the ashes of 1994, the spirit of Soul Asylum has been exhumed and returned to life like the mighty phoenix so that the band might entertain you at the Hollywood Clambake. But there is a larger bounty in store for you than simply reliving the ´90s in Hollywood; you will be reliving the ´90s in Hollywood surrounded by stands full of seafood. When you get weak from flicking your lighter during “Runaway Train” and slamming into the other flannel-adorned fans during “Someone to Shove,” seek out strength in oysters and clams on the half shell – that’s what they’re there for.

If you feel like switching gears, you are only a sleeve’s tear and a couple miles away from your next musical conquest: Molly Hatchet at Gulfstream Racetrack (901 S. Federal Hwy., Hallandale) at 8 p.m. Live it, rocker. Today is your day.

The Clambake is free and Porter Batiste Stoltz (The Funky Meters) is playing at 7 p.m., with Soul Asylum at 9 p.m. on Hollywood Beach’s Beach Stage. There are tons of events to attend and bands performing during the three-day event (Friday through Sunday), visit www.hollywoodclambake.com. Tickets to Molly Hatchet and Blackfoot cost $15 to $25; call 954-457-6201, or visit www.gulfstreampark.com. Your license to rock: priceless.
