Rock the Books tonight

By weeklyvolcano on July 11, 2009


Painkillers There’s something undeniably attractive about getting away with inappropriate acts. Instead of satisfying this itch by indulging in murder or white-collar crime, howsabout you just be loud in a library?

OK, but really loud.

Tonight, the Makeup Monsters will bring their brand of punkish indie pop to the first installment of the Tacoma Public Library’s Rock the Books summer concert series. Hordes of hipsters and hipster-sympathizers will pack a small room at the Main Downtown Library and watch as James Hilborne & the Painkillers â€" the eerie calm before the storm â€" open for the Makeup Monsters and the inevitable sonic destruction of the Dewey Decimal System.

It’s all ages, free, and an opportunity for a light rebellion.

What more could you ask for?
