Vista Chino (formerly Kyuss Lives!), the new version of cult stoner rock legends Kyuss led by vocalist John Garcia, is in town tonight, Wednesday, September 18 for a show at the Fine Line Music Cafe in Minneapolis with support from Black Pussy and Zebulon Pike. I've seen Kyuss three times, once each on the Blues For The Red Sun, Welcome To Sky Valley, and ...And The Circus Leaves Town tours, as well as John's post-Kyuss bands Slo Burn and Unida and Kyuss guitarist Josh Homme's Queens Of The Stone Age - all great shows, with the Kyuss ones being especially memorable. I heard great things about last year's Kyuss Lives! show, so get out for this one if you can. It's an 18+ show that starts at 8:30, and general admission tickets are $25, while the reserved seats are $30.
The Skyway Theater in Minneapolis seems to be filling the void left by the extended closure of Station 4 in St. Paul with a bunch of metal and punk shows, including one by Rancid tonight, September 18. Support for this one comes from Tim Timebomb And Friends, The Interrupters, and Victory (I'm assuming this isn't the German 80s metal band). It's an early all ages show that starts at 5:30, and tickets are $25 and $40 at the door.
