Sun. Jan. 24 -- Our favorite fascist, Ted Nugent, shreds on guitar and skins your wallet after shooting it with his bow & arrow, so you better take it out of your pocket. It's a free-for-all. At the Canyon Club, 28912 Roadside Drive, Agoura Hills 91301; 9pm; $68.50; (818) 879-5016; www.canyonclub.net.
Tues. Jan. 26 -- Thelonious Dub jams the reggaefied jazz here every Tuesday for a while; calendar it. At Air-Conditioned Lounge, 2819 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica 90404; 9pm-midnight; no cover; www.airconditionedbar.com.
Tues. Jan. 26 -- Korpiklaani extol the wirtues of wodka wia their spirited Finnish folk-metal. Good bill with fellow Wiking pagans Tyr, plus Swashbuckle, White Wizzard (read their bassist's great rave on the sellout of Metallica here) and up-and-coming young black-metal dudes Statius. The venue, which has taken over many of the closed Key Club's metal bookings, is a stark warehouse of a place, but a valuable addition to local clubland, especially as it operates outside the loop of the established mafia. At Ultraviolet Social Club, 2662 Lacy St., LA 90031 near the junction of the 110 and 5 freeways; doors 7pm; $24; all ages; strict ID for alcohol; (323) 227-0078; www.8thdaytix.com.
Thurs. Jan. 28 -- Big news: Guitar demon Wino Weinrich (the Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, the Hidden Hand, etc.) reunites with a founding entity of the American stoner-rock movement, St. Vitus. Plus fine newer bands that worship at the same groaning altar: Saviours, Ancestors and Totimoshi. This will sell out, so get tickets now. At Ultraviolet Social Club, 2662 Lacy St., LA 90031 near the junction of the 110 and 5 freeways; doors 7pm; $29.50; all ages; strict ID for alcohol; (323) 227-0078; www.8thdaytix.com.
