6-2: Supersuckers at Peabody's

688e/1242853740-supersuckers.gifOriginally called the Black Supersuckers when they formed in Tucson in 1988, the Supersuckers didn’t have any cow in their punk in those early days. But after only a year together, they packed their bags and moved to Seattle, dropped the “black” part of the moniker and kicked out their singer. Guitarist Eddie Spaghetti made a quick and easy transition to the mic, and it wasn’t long before the guys signed to the venerable Sub Pop label and released The Smoke of Hell. While they’re not nearly as grungey as the rest of Sub Pop’s roster, the Supersuckers fit in with the company’s noise-loving ethos. But everything changed when the band released 1997’s Must’ve Been High, an album that embraced Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings’ outlaw country. The Supersuckers’ latest CD, Get It Together, features more of the same rowdy, kick-your-teeth-in tunes. Doors open at 7 p.m. at Peabody’s (2045 E. 21st St., 216.776.9999). Tickets: $12 advance, $17 day of show. — Jeff Niesel
