Twenty-five years and perhaps as many members — all of whom made a cameo on 2011's The Dwarves Are Born Again — would take a toll on a lesser band. However, this group of scantily clad punks is still ransacking villages across the globe without slowing down. The sound has cleaned up a bit production-wise, and the tones have gotten poppier as Blag Dahlia and Hewhocannotbenamed have aged, but the fiery contempt the Dwarves hold for humanity remains at its peak. See the self-proclaimed earth's greatest band as they bust through classics like "Fuck You Up and Get High," "Who's Fucking Who," "Fuck 'Em All," "We Only Came to Get High," and, of course, "The Dwarves Are Still the Best Band Ever." It'll be an evening full of attitude, energy, and arrogance, perfect to get over the holiday bliss. 18+.
