Real rock 'n' roll is a rough religion. And the danger of living by gloomy catch phrases such as "No future" and "Live fast, die young" usually precludes the possibility of passing gracefully into old age otherwise known as your 30s. But somehow, despite all of those epic moments of youthful chaos and craziness, Churchill's Pub has lasted three full decades without martyring itself.
This Saturday at 7 p.m., Little Haiti's live music headquarters will celebrate the minor miracle of its survival, with 30 Years of Punk. The show will include 15 killer crews such as local legends Charlie Pickett, Radiobaghdad, the Holy Terrors, and the Crumbs pounding out nonstop, 20-minute sets till early morning. For the uninitiated, it'll be a mini history lesson. For everyone else, it'll be just another awesome night at Churchill's. Tickets cost ten bucks in advance.
