First local appearance in several years by this veteran local rock 'n' roll singer-songwriter who has been battling liver disease.

Tonight he's celebrating the re-release of the Rationals eponymous 1970 LP. Openers: Stomp Rockets, the latest of several great local garage-rock bands led by the charismatic vocalist Dan Mulholland, and Mohair Sweets, an R&B band led by singer-guitarist Colin Bryce. $8-$11.
