ROCK | The Blasters 

It was 1985 at a little South Wedge dive called Rumors (long before it became Lux) where I saw the best show I've ever seen in my life. It was Los Angeles rock 'n' roll purveyors and saviors The Blasters just rockin' the joint. For decades now, this hard rockin' band has championed all sub genres of American music with a relentless energy and timeless appeal. The Blasters is the quintessential, go-to bar band. The energy at that Rumors' show way back when had people dancing in the street. The Cops had to shut it down. Will dancing in the street happen this time? Will the fuzz bust up the fun? Will this be the second-best show I've ever seen? Will show-openers The Gas House Gorillas play while swinging from the rafters like, well, gorillas? Stay tuned rockers, stay tuned.

The Blasters with guests the Gas House Gorillas play Tuesday, September 9, at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 8:30 p.m. $25.
