Dan Sartain, Temperance League, Babyshaker

When: Fri., June 8 2012

DAN SARTAIN To the nouveau garagistes and punk-friendly, Sartain is a prolific gift from above — or the past. His latest, Too Tough To Live (cover painting by local stud-ette artiste Kelly Keith, by the way), delivers 13 tracks in just under 19 minutes and is a label-described tribute to the era when “punk was real.” With that track-to-minutes ratio, you guessed it, Sartain is exercising his “one-two-three-four!” Ramones’ muscle here. But he’s also dabbled in everything from rockabilly to dark spaghetti twang, so there’s more to his music quiver as well. If you like your oysters raw… this gig’s for you. (John Schacht)
