“Mid twenties skateboarder/ I hope I don’t get hurt” Pkew Pkew Pkew’s tongue in cheek approach to everything (including their great lazer blast sounding name!) matches perfectly with their celebratory punk music to make them one of the best party bands currently performing. Get tickets to their Turf show early, last time P3 swung through town their party animal fans started showing up (and imbibing) at 3pm for their late night show. Saturday, December 7th, 9 PM. $12. —Taylor Carik
