White Rabbit 20th Anniversary Weekend

Sometimes, when you move into a place and make it irrevocably your own, you still occasionally do things to honor those who dwelt there before, as a kind of homage to the unique kinship born of place. Such is the case with the massive White Rabbit 20th Anniversary celebration going down at Paper Tiger this weekend. For nearly 20 years, the White Rabbit hosted a multitude of shows, largely of the metal, punk, emo, post-hardcore, and hip-hop variety, and provided a space for folks of all ages to gather and momentarily invest themselves wholly in the music being performed. It was quite a successful venture, but it also became, in the great tradition of seedy punk palaces everywhere, an important cultural touchstone. This weekend’s three-night bonanza of a show (festival?) will provide plenty for nostalgic, old school Rabbit heads to fawn over, and, for everyone else, a damn fine (or at least extensive) bill of heavy rock in myriad styles. Just a few of the 50-plus bands on the bonkers lineup include Of Ruins, Upon a Burning Body, Lokey, Donella Drive, Slowlikefire and Psycho Plague. See the website below for a full lineup and to buy tickets, which are available for single days or for the whole weekend. $10-$25, 6pm Fri-Sun, Paper Tiger, 2410 N St Mary’s St, papertigersa.com. — JC
