Bud Bronson & The Good Timers + Nato Coles & The Blue Diamond Band + Dead Bars + Lifestyle Shakes

bud bronson

What happens when some of Denver’s finest rockers in Bud Bronson & The Good Timers (who put on one of our Top 5 Best Live Shows and one of our favorite albums from last year!) shares the bill with some of Twincy’s own fine rockers in Nato Coles & The Blue Diamond Band? Loud sounds, sweet riffs, and a bunch of hard partiers throwing back cheap beers at the Eagles Club. Add Seattle’s Dead Bars and MPLS duo Lifestyle Shakes into the mix and it’s like an entire month of Rocktober crammed into a amazing Wednesday night bash. 8:30 PM. $5-7.Paul Cajun

DOYLE As We Die World Tour


When we got the info that DOYLE—featuring Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, the legendary guitarist for The Misfits taught to play by Danzig—would be making a stop at the small stage at Whiskey Junction, we actually replied with “is this real”? Turns out that it is, and that Doyle and crew will be splitting off from the GWAR tour (which is at First Ave tonight) and giving maniac fans a can’t-miss chance to see his intense stage show and hear songs from his new sophomore album, As We Die. Motograter and Die Ghost open, with the latter doing their last ever show. And if you’re an extra big Misfits fans, there’s still even tickets (only $65!) for the meet-and-great that happens after the show. 6:30 PM. $15 general.Paul Cajun

Election Day Sabering


You did it! You voted! Great work! You can celebrate the waning days of democracy with a champagne party with Haute Couture at Eat Street Social where the bottles will be popped in grandiose fashion with a saber—by you! We recommend calling ahead to reserve your spot/bottle ahead of time and also reserving two if you can since it’s pretty darn fun to open a bottle of bubbly with a small sword. 5-9 PM. Free to attend, bottles $30-45.Art Humes

Director John Carpenter Live

It takes a pretty special show to get us all the way out to Maplewood, and seeing legendary horror director John Carpenter play his music live will do it. Most movie fans know Carpenter’s cult cinema ouvre like They Live, Big Trouble in Little China, Escape from New York, Halloween, and others, but the director’s prowess as an excellent composer and musician is a little less known outside of his die hard followers. At tonight’s show at Myth, Carpenter will perform a range of his music live and meet fans who get in on the pretty great meet-and-greet package (for you maybe?), plus added bonus opener DJ Jake Rudh of Transmission fame. 8 PM. $45.Paul Cajun
