T.U.R.D.S. | The Cave Tavern | Clubs & Concerts, Holidays | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: Sat., Jan. 1, 10 p.m. 2011

Somewhere between, or maybe beneath, the Supersuckers and the Dictators lie the T.U.R.D.S., an acronym for Totally Unstoppable Rawkin Doom Squad. Their exuberant irreverence runs from songs heralding the wonders of pork to paeans for Tony Danza ("I can't stanz-ya"). Frontman Dr. Piggy Plop is the ham-flavored hood ornament atop a throaty garage-punk V-8. Like the Supersuckers, T.U.R.D.S. come fueled by punkabilly swerve, but they're versatile enough to turn '50s Dion-style pop into a foulmouthed come-on (the humorously un-PC "Courtship") that rhymes "skank" with "tanked." Start the New Year with a dirty laugh.—Chris Parker
