Hank Sinatra, The Clinks 

When: Sat., Dec. 10, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: $7

Raleigh cowpunks Hank Sinatra play garage rock with a rockabilly flair. They're a little like the Supersuckers, with more whiskey and fewer narcotics. There's no Hank, only singer/guitarist Jeff Holshouser, who first conceived the band while living in Nashville. It took his return to North Carolina to make it happen. Their catalog remains thin, with only an EP and the 2007 debut LP, Poolhalls and Pantyhose. Still, what's there is a nice mix of earnest roots rock like the plaintive "Open Your Eyes," blooze boogie come-ons like "(I Wanna) Drink With You" and honky-tonk odes to aging exotic dancers with scars in "Low Rent Strip Bars." With The Clinks. —Chris Parker
