Nightlife Highlights: The Britemores/Purple Knif



June 3. Here's a tough double bill. The Britemores, a rockin' quartet from Detroit, boast some heavy veterans of the 1990s garage punk scene: singer and guitarist Johnny Chan (New Dynasty Six, Split Signals), guitarist Jeff Meier (Detroit Cobras, Rocket 455), and drummer Jeff Barterian (Hysteric Narcotics). The local instrumental surf band the Purple Knif has Midwestern roots as well; although the group formed in New York in 1994, all four of its original members—guitarists Ted Lawrence and Johnny Teagle, bassist Baker Rorick, and drummer Chris Butler (the Waitresses, Tin Huey)—hail from Ohio. (Phoebe Legere lands June 11.) 9pm. Donation requested. Beacon. (845) 202-7447.
