Plugged in, ASD's music picks for Sunday, June 10 -- Zoyres, Tennessee Three, Ima Robot
Very wonderfully weird: Zoyres, 9 at the Hemlock. $7.
"Zoyres Eastern European Wild Ferment is an Eastern European hybrid group currently working around the San Francisco Bay Area playing music and promoting their recently released debut cd. They've played at venues such as The Makeout Room, Papa Toby’s Revolution Café, Amnesia, and Hotel Utah. In addition, they’ve performed with artists such as Graham Connah’s Sour Note 7, Zegnotronic Rocket Society, Brass Menagerie, Pickpocket Ensemble, and The Blues Roots among many others." --MySpace.com/zoyres
Not a tribute: Johnny Cash's Legendary Tennessee Three, 9pm at The Independent. $20.
"With that "freight train" guitar sound and a voice so like Cash's, it's spooky, Wootton and drummer W.S. Holland have kept the Tennessee Three (the math gets complicated) together as a tribute to the Man in Black. It's enough to make you take Cash's Personal File off repeat ... at least for a couple of hours." --Kansas City Pitch
Seriously: Ima Robot, 8pm at Slim's. $15.
"When Ima Robot are firing on all cylinders, they whip up a frenzy of keyboard bleeps 'n' bloops, meaty guitar riffs and big funky bass; it boils down to infectious, fancy-pants garage rock. Also working in Ima Robot's favor is the fact that the rhythm section of Meldal-Johnsen and Waronker are studio pros who spent much of the '90s backing up Beck. As left-of-center L.A. rock pedigrees go, Ima Robot's is better than most (if not all)." --PopMatters
