They weren’t the most successful band to come out of the Southeast during the ’80s (R.E.M. hold that distinction), or even the most critically acclaimed (that would be Jason & the Scorchers), but Nashville’s the White Animals may well have been the most beloved. Mixing ’60s British Invasion influences with a ’70s punk aesthetic, a dash of psychedelic flavor, and dub rhythms, the White Animals managed to appeal to both jaded indie rock fans and mainstream college kids alike. Punching the clock close to 300 nights a year, the White Animals played every show, whether for drunken frat boys or at the local punk club, like it might be their last.

Unlike a lot of bands at the time, the White Animals never took themselves too seriously. They had a good seven-year run, opening for bands like the Kinksthe Ramones, and Talking Heads.

This band from your college days returns for a live show with special guest Walrus at the Powerhouse Community Arts Center. Think of it as chance to relive all those Greek parties you attended.

Price is $25 in advance
$30 at the door
