September 14. According to their MySpace page, international blues-punk duo the Jam Messengers—front man Rob K and drummer/singer/guitarist (all at the same time!) Uncle Butcher—are “on a mission: nothing less than resuscitating the sorry carcass of rock ’n’ roll! This once proud music has been abandoned to angst-ridden crybabies and buck-hungry charlatans.” Word. And these guys have the pedigree to revive the rock: Rob K was the singer and bassist of ’70s DC punks the Chumps and New York’s Workdogs, who frequently backed up Jon Spencer; Brazil’s Uncle Butcher had been plying his primitive one-man band act across several releases before the pair formed. (Barn Owl swoops in September 12; Japanese Gum and Avondale Airforce take off October 1.) 7pm. $5. Hudson. (518) 671-6006; www.thespottydog.com.
