EAT AT STEVE'S
EAT AT STEVE'S
JUST A REMINDER about the self-explanatory Foodstock '96 benefit at First Avenue on Thursday (i.e. bring a canned good for the Emergency Food Shelf Network). The Mainroom lineup covers the current Oarfin Records empire (from first to last): Six Day Lane, Trailer Trash, G.B. Leighton, The Scott Laurent Band, and Johnny Clueless. Don't ignore the Entry, where Whoops Kitty starts at 7:30, followed by Rhea Valentine Push On Junior, Backwater, The Wonsers, and Grant Hart. Thursday, 6 p.m. doors. $5/$7 at the door. First Avenue & 7th Street Entry, 701 First Ave. N., Mpls.; 338-8388... For better or worse, the goofy maniacs in Fishbone sound younger and younger every day, having eschewed their fleet bursts of ska in favor of a heavier, Beasties-like fervor, complete with the occasional scatological reference, on their brand-new Rowdy label CD, Chim Chim's Bad Ass Revenge. But hyperkinetic drummer Phillip Fisher ensures the beats won't flag, and if every past performance is any indication, these dudes will cavort onstage with a gusto that looks like a caffeinated game of musical chairs without the chairs. Appropriately enough, this is an all-ages show. $12/$14 at the door; Tuesday, 6 p.m. First Avenue, 701 First Ave. N., Mpls.; 338-8388. (Groebner/Robson)
