Darryl Smyers Recommends

Philadelphia’s Dead Milkmen are one of the funniest bands associated with the American punk scene. The band’s debut, Big Lizard in My Backyard, in 1985, featured a near hit in “Bitchin’ Camaro.” But the Milkmen have never been about sales figures, anyhow. Ditto political correctness: Song titles like “Beach Party Vietnam” tell a good deal of the story. Often hysterical and relentless within the same song, the Dead Milkmen represent the whimsical side of punk rock, an oftentimes neglected subgenre. Thankfully, a decade-long break up ended in 2008, and the crew has been offending and provoking laughter at a furious pace.

Doors open at 7 p.m.
