BANDS AND BEER

Rhythm & Booze

O

ld punks, especially sometime members of The Destructors, never die. They just end up forming cover bands and playing down the pub. Their former guitarist Gizz Butt and his Red, Black & Blues Band plays The Palmerston Arms on December 18, while current axe-man Dave Colton and his Retrolux cohorts will be at the Crab & Winkle on December 5, The Hit or Miss January 15 and The Ostrich Inn on January 29. If the music at www.last.fm/music/Destructors+666/ Bah+Humbug tickles your fancy, then you’ll be pleased to know that The Destructors themselves, supporting the marvellously titled Sick On The Bus, are at The Met Lounge on November 27. Word has reached me that the Crowland Blues Club is no more, with the organisers believing that apathy rules. Thankfully Shakedown Blues at Castor Village Hall is still going strong, no doubt bolstered by the splendid range of Castor Ales they offer. On December 12 they host Shar-Baby, backed by The Dave Thomas - Wes Weston Blues Band, while Little Willy Littlefield and his Boogie Woogie Piano performs on January 30. For advance tickets and further information visit www.shakedownblues.co.uk Possibly the best pub in the city centre, The Ostrich Inn has launched a couple of new nights. On Sundays it’s Mighty Mouth Karaoke, while a quiz with cash prizes takes place on Wednesdays. Both nights start at 34
