Let's say you had the power to convince popular and excellent musicians to set aside their original compositions and accept the horrible stigma of being in a cover band. Whose songs would you get them to play? What would be the special occasion that would convince them this was necessary? How much would you charge people to see this spectacle?
If you're Chris Caballero (a.k.a. Chris Cab), notorious Seattle music personality, the answers are easy. You would get your friends from local bands like Kane Hodder, Schoolyard Heroes, and Sirens Sister to play your favorite punk songs by Jawbreaker, Minor Threat, Botch, Screeching Weasel, Black Flag, and more. You would absolutely have this happen for your 30th birthday. When that was successful, you'd repeat the process for your 31st, of course. And, most importantly, you wouldn't charge anything.
El Corazon will host this ridiculously fun, sing-along show this Saturday, beginning at 10 p.m. (doors at 9). Entry is free, but you have to be 21+ to attend.
