Pierced Arrows

When: Tue., Oct. 19, 9 p.m. 2010

Fred and Toody Cole were punk rock before there was punk rock. The couple met in 1966, when Fred and his draft-dodging band, the Weeds, broke down in Portland en route to Canada. The Weeds subsequently split up after a manager insisted they change their name to the Lollipop Shoppe and the couple naturally headed north to try homesteading in the Yukon. But it was 20 years later that the now Portland-based duo began making waves with the band Dead Moon. Their new trio, Pierced Arrows, continues to play rawboned garage rock with melodies that stick in your head and vocals that make Neil Young sound slick. Be sure to pick up their "split 7" with the Black Lips when you catch them at 9 tonight at the hi-dive (7 S. Broadway, Denver, for $10, 21-plus only, with the Blackouts and Vicious Women opening. — Bill Forman
