Calendar for the week

Page 3 of 3

The Hi-Fives: If the Clash played surf, the result might have sounded something like this Bay Area garage band's tune "Meet the Hi-Fives." And you should meet 'em; the foursome's strong points are imagination (former group names and affiliations include the Narvel Felts and Thee Shatners) and lo-fi, high-speed fun. Oh, yeah, and they wear suits and ties, a la the Wonders (a.k.a. the Oneders) in the Tom Hanks flick That Thing You Do!; see the story on page 94. Pollen, and the Medieval Knievals share the all-ages bill. Showtime is 9 p.m. Wednesday, July 9, at Hollywood Alley, 2610 West Baseline in Mesa. Tickets are $5 in advance, $8 the day of the show, available at Dillard's. For details call 820-7117 or 503-5555.

Pat Boyack and the Prowlers: Boyack's one of the staples of the hoppin' Texas-blues scene in Dallas, along with fellow guitarists Smokin' Joe Kubek and Anson Funderburgh. Spenser Thomas has replaced former Prowlers vocalist Jimmy Morello. Touring in support of the new album superblue & funky, Boyack and band are scheduled Wednesday, July 9, at the Rhythm Room, 1019 East Indian School. Showtime is 9 p.m. A Phoenix Blues Society meeting precedes at 7:30, and Valley bluesman "Lovesick" Steve Cheseborough hosts a release party for his new disc at 8. Admission is free before 8:15, $4 after. For details call 265-4842.

Cold Cold Hearts: Allison Wolfe of Bratmobile infame leads this all-grrrl wrecking crew. State Route 522 shares the stage. Showtime is 10 p.m. Wednesday, July 9, at Stinkweeds Record Exchange, 1250 East Apache, Suite 109, in Tempe. For details call 968-9490.
