Like a nice little mini-festival of fun, swaggering Americana punk—and Robbinsdale booster!—Gabe Barnett and his backing band them Rounders share a dance-filled night with the dangerous surf rockers Black Widows and their Go-Go dancers. Even more, The Nunnery will do a set in the Hook’s fantastic lounge and Rachel Hanson plays with her band. We say this a lot, but we mean it, go to one of these shows at The Hook, it’s a great space to get up close to the show and their beer selection is *mwah* Thursday, 7 PM. $7 advance, $10 door. —Paul Cajun
