Late-breaking show annoucement: Dead Milkmen singer-guitarist Joe Jack Talcum
will play a rare solo acoustic show at the Happy Dog
(5801 Detroit Ave., 216-651-9474 ) Saturday, December 2. Opening the show will be Philly country-punks Ukebox
and local indie-rockers.
Recommended strategy to get him to play unplugged versions of "Bitchin' Camaro" and "Punk Rock Girl": Let him perform a few new songs, applaud vigorously, and then ask him nicely for the old stuff. Doors at 9:30 p.m. We tried calling the club for the cover charge, but they weren't answering. - D.X. Ferris
