Lady Dottie and the Diamonds, Hungry Ghost, Sad Horse

(Funhouse) This bill is all kinds of punk rock. Lady Dottie and the Diamonds hail from the punk-rock mecca of San Diego. Sexagenarian Lady Dottie belts out brawny, soulful vocals over the Diamonds' sultry blues-soaked punkā€"or in their own words, "a sloppy MC5 backing up a street-version Etta James." Portland's Hungry Ghost, compiled from equal parts Andrew Price and former Unwound drummer Sara Lund, adapt the latter band's use of repetition by draping it with roots-tinged guitar riffs and funked-up vocal rambling. Also from Portland, Sad Horse slap together catchy, lo-fi chord work, spry drumming, and screamed group vocals. The end result? Three disparate examples of ideal dance-party punk. GRANT BRISSEY
