The Standells mega-garage hit from 1966, "Dirty Water," is more infectious than the Meow Mix or Laurie's Natural Foods commercials, and is listed in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame as one of the 500 songs that shaped rock 'n' roll. This Boston Quartet proved influential to artists like The Sex Pistols and The Ramones, and has had songs covered by The Boss, Aerosmith, U2, and Minor Threat. This tour features original Standells Larry Tamblyn and John Fleck... Aww, Boston you're my home.

The Standells with The Anderson Stingrays perform Thursday, May 8, at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point. 8 p.m. $15-$20. Lovincup.com; Standells-official.com.
