Presented by Abstract Entertainment and Slovenly Recordings, the first Sacramento Trash Jubilee could prove hard to top in the future. Over three consecutive days, the city will be treated to a trio of events that include some of the genre’s greatest imports and exports.
The first night at Bottle & Barlow on June 22 will be curated by Pete Slovenly during the venue’s regular ‘Trash Rock Thursdays’ and will feature a host of additional DJs to be announced. There is no cover charge for this 21-and-over engagement.
The second night at The Torch Club on June 23 features Th’ Losin’ Streaks, The Nashville Ramblers, Lo-Lite and the Not Yetis. This event is also 21-and-over and tickets are $15.
For those braving the entire run of shows, the greatest reward arguably comes last. The Kids, a group from Belgium, will headline the jubilee as they celebrate their 47th anniversary at Harlow’s.
Expect to hear fan favorites such as “Do You Love Nazis?,’” “There Will Be No Next Time,” and “Fascist Cops.” Additionally, the audience may catch songs from the band’s 70’s and 80’s output, including ‘The Kids,’ ‘Naughty Kids,’ ‘Living In The 20th Century,’ ‘Black Out’ and ‘Gotcha.’ Today’s line-up features its sole original member, singer-guitarist Ludo Mariman, along with bassist Ief Vanlommel, guitarist Luc van de Poel and drummer Tim Jult.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.harlows.com for $25 advance and $30 at the door. Doors open at 6 p.m., while the show starts at 7 p.m. Sacramento’s The Troublemakers, along with The Snares and The Control Freaks, will go on first. A full line-up of Trash Rock DJ’s spinning throughout the night will be announced soon. Harlow’s is located at 2708 J Street in downtown Sacramento.
