Davila 666 at the Hi-Tone Cafe 

Gonerfest veterans from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Davila 666 is about as sure a thing as a live band as you'll find these days. Their sound runs the pre-punk-rock gamut — mid-'60s pop melodicism, Stooges swagger, Stones groove, Velvet Underground combo of the twinkling and atonal — but somehow manages to sound like more than mere record-collector-rock mimicry. This startling command and musical ambition make them much more than just good genre music. And, on stage, they are a howlingly good time. Davila 666 returns to Memphis for a second time this year, performing at the Hi-Tone Café on Thursday, November 3rd, with the Barreracudas and Manatees. Doors open at 9 p.m. Admission is $10.
