Still basking in its shiny new-store smell, the two-month-old Dr. Martens on Market Street will be rocking out tonight (5pm to 7pm) with the third leg of its Stand For Something USA Tour. New York alt-rock band Blonde Redhead will kick off the party with a special DJ set. After that, a little hometown groovin' with a live performance from King Woman (aka Kristina Esfandiari) and a DJ set by Trails and Ways. Woot.
All you have to do is show up. And kindly RSVP to the free event, co-hosted by Culture Collide. Then what? Head to the Independent to see what Blonde Redhead trio Kazu Makino and twin bros Simone and Amedeo Pace can really do. Show starts at 9:30pm.
