I've never seen Mugen Hoso in the flesh before, but I have it on good authority that the Japanese blues-punk duo sometimes do backflips on stage. Yeah. Backflips. I have seen a YouTube clip of them performing Mose Allison's (by way of the Who) "Young Man's Blues" and fucking tearing it up. Taking the song's breakneck turns at top speed and skidding through its many stops and starts, Mugen Hoso send approximately one million volts through it, turning Allison's melancholy blues dawdle into a powder keg that no punk can resist. If Mugen Hoso brings even a 10th of that energy to tonight's show, this is going to be the most electrifying show of the week. Local punks Sharks from Mars offer up their new seven-track CD tonight as well, a hot gob of dirty rock that you'll want to smear all over your jeans. NED LANNAMANN
