The description punkabilly doesnt quite sum ´em up. Th Legendary Shack Shakers is a proselytizing whirling dervish of in-your-face electrified swamp tunes, and thats precisely why its loved. With relentless touring (about 200 shows per year), the band has converted the great unwashed into its own congregation of devout followers, but if you want to join in the action when LSS plays at Churchills (5501 NE Second Ave., Miami) on Saturday, there are a few things you should know. Singer/harmonica-blaster JoeBuck wants you to react, and if you dont, he will incite a response. Hell shoot his deepest nasal funk at you like a collagenous dart. Hell rip out his own pubic hair and throw it on the crowd like party confetti. Hell scare the hell out of ya (or into ya).
@body:If you want the action without the thrill of finding a bevy of red curly hairs stuck to your shirt, stand in the back or better on the bar. Nervous about biohazard nostril contact? Wear a surgical mask. The benefits of a simple paper mask are multifold: (a) your orifices become impenetrable, (b) you project a sterile and sassy look thats terribly en vogue, (c) people dont fuck with madmen in masks. Now go ye into this great world and spread the gospel. Tickets cost $10. Check out supporting acts the Remnants, Van Orsdels, and Cheated Hearts; damnation begins at 9 p.m. Visit www.churchillspub.com.
