Rockabilly Riot

10 p.m. Saturdays all summer, 21 and over, $5. The Garage Bar, 1859 W. 25th St., 216-696-7772.


Every Saturday from now until Labor Day weekend, the Garage Bar will host a Rockabilly Riot. The hepcats of Madision Crawl -- Cleveland's finest eight-piece barrel-house boogie rock band -- will kick off the series of live shows, but most of the other bands will be out-of-state groups, from Detroit's Twistin' Tarantulas to Florida's Marauders. The club's clearing out a dance floor, but if you don't want to bust a rug, head out to the patio, where you can smoke. And what's loud music, hot chicks, and fast cars without smokes?
