John 5 & the Creatures/Olathia 

When: Fri., March 11, 8:30 p.m. 2016
Price: $16 ADV, $18 DOS
Take one look at the demonic face paint and gothic wardrobe of John William Lowery, also known as John 5, and you probably wouldn’t guess his inspiration to learn to play guitar as a boy came from TV shows like Hee Haw and The Monkees. But learn he did — enough to steal the show from a rock group he joined as a teen to make his guitar shredding its own, center-stage act. If John 5’s persona wasn’t quirky enough, his blisteringly-speedy hard rock music is just as full of surprising twists, in the form of flamenco flourishes and rockabilly breakdowns. Throughout 2016, John 5 plans to release one song, with music video, per month, which will eventually comprise his next, fittingly-named album, “Guitars, Tits, and Monsters.” He’s likely to shred his way through some of those new songs, including the latest single, “Making Monsters,” at tonight's show.
