Th'Legendary Shack*Shakers

When: Sat., July 5, 9 p.m. 2008

The Legendary Shack*Shakers dispense a high-octane, four-on-the-floor, balls-to-the-wall brand of musical mayhem that distills everything that's ever been considered dangerous in American music -- rockabilly, punk, honky-tonk country, blues, surf, thrash, hip-hop, guttersnipe rock -- and serve it up in an impossible-to-resist gumbo. J.D. Wilks sings like he gargles Drano for breakfast, and the rest of the band lives up to its name playing with a mania that can turn a house party into a drunken brawl. It's extreme music, and the band's live shows live up to the hyperbole of its moniker. At the Independent (628 Divisadero St., San Francisco) on Saturday, July 5. 9 p.m., $13, $15.
