Guantanamo Baywatch

Turf Club : 8:00 p.m. November 23

Portland surf rockers Guantanamo Baywatch are famous for their sexed-up stage show. Their campy "Wipe Out" homage pairs nicely with D-movie levels of raunch, and the Suicide Squeeze trio brings both in buckets with songs like "Cum Fart Food" and "Massage My Taj Mahal." It's like a Ralph... More >>

A Tribute To The Replacements

First Avenue : 7:00 p.m. November 28
