Flamin' Groovies/Wussy/DJs Alright and Jimmy Carl Black 

When: Sat., Nov. 14, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $25
To say Cyril Jordan and his band the Flamin' Groovies have had to wait for their just due as rock legends is an understatement of monumental proportions. Born and bred in San Francisco, the Groovies have weathered many a storm over the past 48 years. Jordan's integrity, which kept the band firmly rooted in the classic rock 'n' roll of the '50s and '60s, has meant that fame and fortune eluded him in an era in which jumping on the latest band wagons of psychedelia, album-oriented rock, punk and new wave may have allowed him an easy path to status and stardom. But it appears that time may be finally on their side. Jordan, original bass player George Alexander and charismatic lead singer Chris Wilson recently reunited after three decades, and the ground swell of interest in their rebirth has already reached international proportions.
