WE RECOMMEND THESE LIVE SHOWS TONIGHT >>>

Bull Market Bar and Grill/Paradise Bowl Tacoma - Parkland. Iron Maidens, Just Dirt. 21+. 9 pm. $15.

Hell's Kitchen Tacoma - Downtown. Blackhounds, Sugarfixx, Feared Alive, BND, Rooftop Warrior. 21+. 9 pm. NC.

Jazzbones Tacoma - Sixth Avenue. Too Slim & The Taildraggers. 21+. 8 pm. $8-$10.

  • Take the modern alt-country blues sound of Drive-By Truckers, throw in the fun loving attitude and riff-blues-rock of ZZ Top, mix them all together and you get close to the vibe of Too Slim and the Taildraggers. This is real, down and dirty rock and roll - a delightful jumble of virtuosic slide guitar work from frontman Tim "Too Slim" Langford and the revamped rock sound of the Taildraggers. The band's vibe blends power-chord-driven, fun-loving nasty grooves with a new, indie-rock songwriting vibe. And it works. Don't worry, though, Too Slim and crew definitely infuse plenty of blues and Americana into their work. You dig? - Paul Schrag

Rainier Arts Festival Ashford. Eric "Two Scoops" Moore, John Sparrow, Son Jack Jr. Noon-4:30 pm.

Rhythm & Brews Tacoma - Downtown. Maia Santell and House Blend. All Ages. 8:30 pm. NC.

  • If the hype has yet to reach you, let us gladly be the first the draw your attention to Rhythm & Brews, Tacoma's newest nightclub and local music venue, opening this weekend in the space that Juno and The Garage once called home. Yes, someone's trying it again in that fateful Market Street locale. But this time it's Gary Grape calling the booking shots, the familiar name behind the South Sound Blues Association and lots of other local music-centric community organizing. Though we've seen venues come and go in the spot Grape is trying to resurrect for this town, we're hopeful Rhythm & Brews will have some staying power. Grape's wife, Maia Santell, and her wonderful backing band, House Blend, will officially christen Rhythm & Brews' grand opening Friday night. Saturday, the South Sound Blues Association's 2010 International Blues Challenge winner, Blues Redemption, takes the stage. Next weekend promises Little Bill and the Bluenotes and also Billy Roy Danger and the Rectifiers. It's quite a start, with hopefully much more to come. - Weekly Volcano

Traditions Cafe and World Folk Art Olympia - Downtown. Fiddle Fest, hosted by Carla Wulfsberg. All Ages. 5 pm. NC.
