The Infamous Sugar, The Royal Nites, Thick Modine 

When: Fri., April 1, 9:30 p.m. 2016
Price: $8
Tonight, David Simmons, or The Infamous Sugar, promises to push his alter ego’s irreverent punk-soul act to rarely seen proportions. This full-band gig expands The Infamous Sugar beyond the usual setup of keyboard, drum machine, and vocals and gives Simmons’ cheeky tunes a brash boost. Infectious hooks and greasy R&B grooves abound, propelling the cunning and crude sense of humor that makes the lascivious boasts and come-ons of “They Call Me Sugar” and the innuendo of “Hot, Hot, Diggity Dog” feel more playful than offensive. The Infamous Sugar shares DNA with Blowfly and The Dead Milkmen, but as he bounces from a spartan disco beat to dirty rock, self-awareness and pop smarts save the day. —Bryan C. Reed
