Nashville-based band White Animals blazed onto the Southeast music scene in 1980 when Dr. Kevin Gray quit his residency at Vanderbilt Hospital to start a band, and it became one of the hottest rock acts on the college party circuit. The foursome returns to Virginia for the first time in 30 years with its signature blend of ’60s British Invasion and ’70s punk aesthetic.

Saturday 10/5. $15, 8pm. Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First Street. 977-5590.
