Come Hither Ye Olde Punk

Real rock ‘n’ roll is a rough religion. And the danger of living by such doom-racked tenets as “No Future” and “Live Fast, Die Young” usually precludes the possibility of growing gracefully into old age — otherwise known as your thirties. But somehow, despite all those epic moments of youthful chaos and craziness, Churchill’s Pub (5501 NE 2nd Ave., Miami) has lasted three full decades without martyring itself.

This Saturday at 8 p.m., Little Haiti’s live music headquarters celebrates the minor miracle of its survival with 30 Years of Punk. The show will include 15 killer crews — such as local legends Charlie Pickett, Radiobaghdad, the Holy Terrors, and the Crumbs — pounding out non-stop, 20-minute sets till early morning. For the uninitiated, it’ll be a mini-history lesson. For everyone else, it’ll be just another awesome night at Churchill’s. Tickets cost $10 in advance. Call 800-594-TIXX, or visit slammie.musictoday.com.
