Guitar Wolf at the Hi-Tone Café

Nagasaki garage/punk trio Guitar Wolf and Memphis go way back. The band, whose brand of punk highlights the '50s rock influence inherit in American punk pioneers like the Ramones, formed in the late '80s but made their U.S. release debut with 1993's Wolf Rock!, the first release from Memphian Eric Friedl's nascent Goner Records label. The Memphis connection continued a few years later when the band appeared — alongside Friedl's Oblivians bandmate Jack Yarber — in Memphis filmmaker J. Michael McCarthy "B" movie extravaganza The Sore Losers. More than 20 years after forming, despite losing their original bassist to a 2005 heart attack, the band continues with minimal stylistic change or loss of energy. Guitar Wolf plays the Hi-Tone Café Tuesday, June 7th, with like-minded Tennesseans Cheap Time and Hans Condor. Doors open at 7 p.m. Admission is $13. — Chris Herrington
