Smokestack
Utopia Café, 117 E. Bijou St., 633-1080
Thursday, Dec. 19, 9:30 p.m.
18-and-over, $5

There's a real "Hakunamatata"-meets-Paul-Simon-in-his- "Diamonds on the Soles of My Shoes"-as-played-by-Schroeder-from-Peanuts-if-he-were-the-keyboard-player-in-Phish sound to the Ann Arbor, Michiganbased band Smokestack. They describe their sound as, simply, "eclectic groove." I wonder why they call themselves Smokestack? One way or another, there's lots of waka-chika-waka-chika-waka-chika-waka-chika-waka-chika. Describe them for yourself at Utopia Café (which is now under new ownership) tonight!
