As mentioned, Nashville's snarling, glammy Cheap Time are currently on the road with SoCal punk vets Social Distortion and The Loved Ones frontman Dave Hause (who plays a free RBSS show with The Gaslight Anthem). That tour hits the NYC-area on Saturday (6/22) at Stone Pony Summerstage with Hot Water Music and Sunday (6/23) at Warsaw. Tickets for both NYC-area shows are still available.

Cheap Time have squeezed in a headlining gig happening in NYC after those shows at Pianos on Monday night (6/24) with Pittsburgh's Shockwave Riderz and The Vim Dicta. Tickets are $8 at the door. Hopefully Cheap Time will try out material from their new album which is due this fall.

Shockwave Riderz features Phil Boyd and Paul Quattrone, who some of you may remember from '00s-era garage rockers The Modey Lemon, who called it quits in 2010. Their new thing is a little more stripped down and prone to riding a motorik groove. Zone out on their three-song EP below. In addition to Monday's Pianos show, you can also catch Shockwave Riderz opening for Jon Spencer Blues Explosion their previously discussed at Music Hall of Williamsburg (7/18) show (tickets).
