It is with a heap of delight that we announce that our cross-county siblings at the Miami New Times' music blog Crossfade are hosting a concert Friday evening.
Dubbed "The Local" at the Stage Miami, the event boasts the considerable live talents of punkabilly fire-breathers Everymen, as well as fellow rabble-rousers the Wholetones, Brain Chips, and Uncle Scotchy. Bring a corn-cob pipe.
This is going to be a night to remember, even if the free cover leads to an alarming number of rye whiskey shots. We are not condoning binge drinking, but binge listening is a given.
Our good pal Sean Pajot got a hold of two of the acts from the evening.
From the mouth of Uncle Scotchy:
Uncle Scotchy is an alter-ego. He's born from a lifetime of
self-mistreatment, frustration, sorrow, anger and ... comedy. His
biography is as interesting and true to me as any other. What the fuck.
Nobody really knows me anyway. Who wants to open the paper and read
"Eric Garcia solo at the Douche Bar"? I might as well pour my guts out
as Uncle Scotchy.
Courtesy of Cap'n Bobo of Everymen:
We have come from different backgrounds -- ex-junkies, catholic-raised,
gypsy families, resident aliens, all walks of life. We have lots of
demons to write about, change starts at home, in your community, and in
our own growth.
These are definitely the folks who can help you drown your sorrows. Lots more to come Friday night.
Everymen, The Wholetones, Brain Chips, and Uncle Scotchy as part of

Miami, 170 NE 38th St., Miami. The rager begins at 9 p.m. and admission
