Eddie Spaghetti/CJ Gunn & the Exceptions/Blackgrass Baptism

When: Tue., Nov. 12, 9 p.m. 2013

Originally called the Black Supersuckers when they formed in Tucson in 1988, the Supersuckers didn’t have any cow in their punk in those early days. But after only a year together, they packed their bags and moved to Seattle, dropped the “black” part of the moniker and kicked out their singer. Guitarist Eddie Spaghetti made a quick and easy transition to the mic, and it wasn’t long before the guys signed to the venerable Sub Pop label and released the loud and unruly The Smoke of Hell. While they were never as grunge-y as the rest of Sub Pop’s roster, the Supersuckers fit in with the company’s noise-loving ethos. But everything changed when the band released 1997’s Must’ve Been High, an album that embraced Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings’ outlaw country. While the band still continues, Spaghetti has released two solo albums. On The Value of Nothing, the most recent of those two discs, he delivers irreverent tunes such as "If Anyone's Got the Balls" and "Fuckin' with My Head." (Niesel)
