Echo of The Elms / King Dong’s Variety Hour / Johnny Both’s Rebel Revue
Echo of the Elms calls itself “the culmination of difference styles, genres and ideas, turned into rock music via Lawrence, KS. A little bit of noise reggae, dance and recklessness have been thrown in for good measure.” Should its description hold, you may have to explain a few bruises later in the week at family holiday gatherings. The five-person group cites Dinosaur Jr., The Beatles, The Stooges and Ad Astra Per Aspera among its many influences. The show begins at 10 p.m. at The Replay Lounge, 949 Mass., King Dong’s Variety Hour and Johnny Booth’s Rebel Revue will also be playing.
