The Aquabats

Wed., July 26, 8 p.m.

The Aquabats were formed in 1994 in Orange County, CA. The band is easily identified by their masks and matching costumes and their comedic persona in which they claim to be crime fighting superheroes. This theme serves as subject for much of the band’s music and as part of their theatrical stage show, which typically feature various stunts and fight scenes with costumed villains and monsters. Musically, the band has evolved since their start, beginning as an eight member ska band before reinventing themselves as more of a new wave influenced five piece rock band. $23

meelickmusic@aol.com

MUSIC FROM THE LOST CONTINENT: CD LAUNCH Individually respected on both sides of the Atlantic, together Jesse and Seán form one of the finest duets in traditional music. Their recording, Music From the Lost Continent, is "a bona fide cracker" and "an amazingly rich and nuanced album" (The Irish Echo.) However, praise ("elegant," "soulful," "magic"), no matter how richly deserved, is limited in its ability to convey the experience of what they do. $15
