Music worth leaving the house to hear this week

The Fleshtones with Dragstrip Syndicate
Local 506
Saturday, Oct. 25, 10 p.m.

With a firm foundation of rock and R&B under their feet, NYC's Fleshtones launched an intoxicating party music vibe that retains the same punch it had in 1976. They created a stew of garage rock riffs with front man Peter Zaremba leading crowds in traditional party trains (Ever wonder where The Woggles got it?) that make everybody part of the action. "Super Rock" they call it, and any Sleazefest alumnae know these guys set the mark for good time music. Now they're back. Richmond's Dragstrip Syndicate will get the ball rolling. For more information, 942-5506. -- Chris Toenes

Kings Halloween Throwdown
Kings Barcade
Tuesday, Oct. 28, 9 p.m.

You should never have doubts about trusting your Halloween fun to any band crazy enough to play tawdry, raunchy rock 'n' roll with titles like "Lube Job," "The Bitch is Bach" and "Fried Chicken Cadillac." That band is the aptly dubbed Drunk Horse, coming straight out of Oakland with a beer-drinking, riff-stiffened homebrew of sexual obsession and late-night revelry. The Cherry Valence--coming off five days with this crazy Horse--will be on hand with a batch of Halloween covers, as well as The Weather and Skip Elsheimer's A/V Geeks. Costume contest, bob for beer and evil snacks. -- Grayson Currin

Josh Rouse w/ Leona Naess
Cat's Cradle
Wednesday, Oct. 22, 9:15 p.m.
$10

On the cover of his latest effort, 1972, Josh Rouse looks like the casually dopey cross between some of his likely heroes: John Lennon and Bob Dylan. That comes as no surprise given the contents--10 surprisingly eclectic, brightly made tracks for such a young, contagious singer-songwriter. Rouse's love experience sometimes comes in the key of bland, but few other writers understand their way around a three-verse narrative lyric any better. Leona Naess will charm you with her voice, guaranteed. -- Grayson Currin

David Holt and the Lightning Bolts
Fletcher Opera Theater at BTI Center
Friday, Oct. 24, 8 p.m.
$16 and $21

Widely known as a traveling acoustic musician, storyteller and historian, David Holt is also host of UNC-TV's "Folkways," which explores traditional crafts and music. A three-time Grammy winner, he's most recognized for his concerts, where the old tradition of eloquent storytelling meets the back porch feel of his songs. He's joined on this date by his backing band the Lightning Bolts, for a fuller sound with banjo, fiddle and more. Great entertainment for roots music fans of all ages. --Chris Toenes
