ARTS Pick: Dr. Southclaw’s wild ride

Implementing massive bass riffs, pulsing drums, screaming guitars and sing-alongs, five-piece freak funk phenomenon Dr. Slothclaw bends the genre to its liking and you’re in for a wild ride. The musical titans push the limits of creativity with their outrageously fun “freak shows” and self-declared “hobbies,” such as “erotic baking” and whistling competitions.

Saturday, February 3.  $5-8, 7pm. The Ante Room, 219 Water St. 284-8561.
