Tsunamibots @ Charlie O's 10/31
Finally, the greatest bar in the world, Charlie O's World Famous in Montpelier, has a ripping punk night on tap for Halloween with sci-fi/surf outfit the Tsunamibots, punk trio Black Rabbit and Massachusetts-based punks the Pity Whores. The Tsunamibots, by the way, are an offshoot of the late, not-really-great-but-super-fun punk band Spit Jack. They bring a welcome note of geekery to the recent surf-rock boom in Vermont, existing closer to Man or Astro-man? than surf godfather Dick Dale. (Costume suggestion: zombie Spit Jack.) Dan Bolles
