Members of Timmy and the Tumblers and The HUMMS comprise new local instrumental surf-rock outfit The Cryptides, so you can rest easy knowing that incredible moniker is in capable hands. Early demos point towards a shockingly developed sound—a slinky, sexy swirl with just the right smear of dirt. The newly formed Jones Maintenance All-Stars is a hybrid group of sorts featuring members of Nate and the Nightmares and Free Associates; the Nightmares’ Nate Mitchell tells Flagpole the band will be “playing a mix of originals and classic rock and roll cover songs.”  The Rodney Kings will be on hand to provide a jolt of punk power, and appropriately capping off a night of throwback jams is a DJ set from local vinyl guru Kurt Wood.
