Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives

Culann’s Hounds

The Bay Area’s favorite band of Celtic-punk-rock rebels returns to the Twin Oaks Roadhouse for an evening of fast-and-ferocious, F-bomb-dropping, murder-ballad-loving, face-melting guitar-and fiddle fury. When the Hounds play live, you’ll dance till your feet bleed, and then you’ll thank them for it. First set 8:30 p.m. No cover. 5745 Old Redwood Blvd, Penngrove.
