As a little runt in the late '80s, I owned a rabbit's foot keychain. And really, didn't everyone? Back then, lucky bunny body parts were still a genuine fixture of pop culture. Today though, the hallowed tradition of carrying a severed rodent's leg on your person as some sort of amulet against evil mojo seems to be in serious decline. It's a shame. And personally, I blame PETA and Bunny Lovers magazine for needlessly destroying an ancient tradition while decimating the novelty keychain industry in the process. 

Sadly, there's nothing you or I can do to restore the golden era of the rabbit's foot, but we can improve our luck by checking out St. Louis-based twee punks Bunnygrunt when they ramble through Propaganda next Friday. Founded in 1993, the band has seen some heavy roster rotation, although guitarist Matt Harnish and drummer Karen Ried have always served as the solid core. Their sound is a little bit jangle, a little bit cute, and just the right amount of evil. Meanwhile, fellow Missouri crew Sex Robots -- imagine a wasteoid Johnny Thunders jamming with an animatronic Thin Lizzy -- will kick in some good vibes of their own. In short, it'll be all the good fortune with zero rabbit sacrifice. 

Wednesday, August 26. Propaganda, 6 South J St., Lake Worth. Doors open at 8 p.m. Ages 21+ with ID. 561-547-7273; propagandalw.com

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
