ROCK/ALT-COUNTRY | The Chinchillas 

The Chinchillas occupy the space located somewhere in between honky-tonk's "Aww shucks" and rock 'n' roll's "Aww f**k it." The band is the alt to the nth degree and the bang to the American beer joint's textbook twang. The Chinchillas are kinda, sorta like The Replacements without as big of a death wish. Hysterically deadpan and insightful, front man Pete Anvelt is one of the best songwriters I know. And now The Chinchillas celebrate 30 years of rockin' and rollin,' singing about plane crashes and Genesee Beer while guzzling said local brew in joints that look like a plane crashed into them. Join the Chinchillas as they blow out 30 candles and boogie real slow with the blue lights way down low.

The Chinchillas with guest Ted Keaton play Saturday, March 28, at The Club at Water Street Music Hall, 204 North Water Street. 8 p.m. $5-$10.;
