Saturday, June 9 – RadioShaq 3: Shaq to the Future
with Basements of Florida, Thee Wilt Chamberlain,
the Jensen Serf Company, Alias Punch
The Peacock Room
1321 N. Mills Ave.
We’re already in the tank for this occasional Alias Punch-hosted theme night, the last of which introduced the very idea of Shaquille O’Neal’s existence as a totemic meta-joke (awesomely, we might add) shortly before Shaq himself returned the favor by lathering up the media by suggesting he was being considered as Magic general manager. But they’re really courting our inner child with the third installment, a Back to the Future narrative – drummer Arkie Jay is missing but has been spotted at various moments in history! – that feels like a cross between a theme-park revue and a late-night high-dea. So we’re in. Sweetening the pot is the traditional out-of-town guest star – this time, St. Petersburg slip-n-slide duo Jensen Serf Company.
