The band's latest effort Good Enough falls somewhere between a raspy Fenix TX and the Bouncing Souls, and includes a lot of brawny punk tunes buzzing with major chords, rapid-fire drumming, and the gruff vocals of Pat Stahl, who sounds a little less abrasive (or more abrasive depending on how you look at it) than Rancid's Matt Freeman.
The Shakers will play at Roy's (8000 W. Sample Road) Friday. The show starts at 11 p.m. and is free. Roy's is a bar, so admission is only for 21 and up.
