ARTS Pick: The Shine Brothers

The Shine Brothers get down and stay dirty with their self-made brand of "sexbeat" musical mayhem. The Shine Brothers get down and stay dirty with their self-made brand of “sexbeat” musical mayhem.

L.A. sunshine pop meets dirty woven “psych-my-delic” harmonies when The Shine Brothers climb on stage this week. Claiming influences as irreverent and eclectic as “conflict, nature, enlightenment, revenge, and sugar” the garage rock ensemble, fronted by Nate Ryan of The Black Angels, is known for its rollicking live show. Girl Choir and Big Air, a local two-man rock factory featuring Rob Dobson of The Fire Tapes and drummer Greg Sloan of Dwight Howard Johnson, open.

Thursday 8/8. $8, 9pm. Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar, 414 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 293-9947.
