Shannon & The Clams

When: Wed., Jan. 9, 9 p.m. 2013

New Year's Eve may be over, but the party isn't. If you've still got strength in your legs and calories to burn, don't miss Oakland's own Shannon and the Clams, who'll tear up Thee Parkside (1600 17th St., San Francisco) on Wednesday, Jan. 9. More than just another Bay Area throwback garage band, Shannon and the Clams have a sound that's both gritty and tightly executed, irreverent and genuine, buoyed by frontwoman Shannon Shaw's rockabilly-punk swagger, catchy pop songwriting, and a solid rhythmic backbone. Live, the trio's a riot, churning audiences into a sweaty, dancing frenzy -- no wonder the band has a steady stream of gigs. With Therapists, Youthbitch, and Primitive Hearts. 9 p.m., $8.
