R&B/ Soul

The Isotopes & The Bleechers ft. Liam Enright

When: Fri., May 2, 8 p.m. 2014

Founding member and certified guitar hero Handsome B. Wonderful refuses to let the laws of physics interfere with his picking speed, and once again proves that no pinch harmonic is too outlandish. Bassist Trent Steele lays down thick R&B grooves, blazing metal runs and melodic lines, as well as sporting a mustache that looks as good as it smells. Rhythm Guitarist Lance Uppercut covers ground with a tight percussive style, occasionally leaning into a tasty blues-influenced solo. The group's live line-up is augmented by lighting whiz Max Power, the voice of the mysterious/often offensive Isotopes Announcer, and the World Famous Isotopes Go-Go Dancers, Jenny Talya and Sharon Peters.

Price: $3-$5
