Supersuckers Don’t Rest on Sunday: Eddie Spaghetti’s eternally awesome Supersuckers perform at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach on Sunday afternoon. Scott H. Biram, Jenny Don’t, the Spurs, and Rod Gator will also be there.

The band formed in Tucson, AZ, in 1988 and has been going strong ever since, with a sound that jumps from cowpunk to alt-rock to rockabilly and back again. 1999’s The Evil Powers of Rock ‘N’ Roll album was a spectacular highlight of a solid career thus far.

Spaghetti has been all over these parts in recent years, recently working with Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs man Frank Meyer on the amusingly named Spaghetti & Frank project. When they were performing last year, we said: “The last Supersuckers album, Play That Rock N’ Roll, came out last year while the Cheetahs put out the One More Drink album earlier this year. So expect plenty of new material between the two of them. And keep an eye on the Redwood calendar — plenty of awesome rock & roll coming up.”

Back in 2019, while promoting that last album, Spaghetti said in a statement: “The Supersuckers have been doing this for a long time. A LONG time. And the fact that we’re stilldoing it is not lost on us. We still love Rock n Roll. I mean, we must. There’s no other explanation for why we would still be putting out fresh, new rock music anymore. No one NEEDS it. Hell, hardly anybody even WANTS it. But here it is. Another master class in quality Rock n’ Roll. Sure it’s for the few, the proud, the People of Impeccable Taste, the Connoisseurs Of Quality but it makes us happy to know we still got it. And we do. We might be better than we’ve ever been and that’s exciting. So here it is, our love letter to good, ass kicking rock n roll. Turn it on, turn it up and listen to the Supersuckersplay that Rock n’ Roll!!”

True enough!

Supersuckers Don’t Rest on Sunday: The event takes place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, January 16 at Alex’s Bar.
