Smart Bets: The Humms

"The show is to be an old tyme rock and raw hazing venture," say Athens, Ga.-based garage rockers The Humms. The trio's bio recounts their evolution through influences like "their Cramps-esque B-horror flick shtick … vintage psychedelic lo-fi pop (à la The Troggs) and Gothic blues-rock (think Flat Duo Jets)." The Humms' 2010 full-length, Lemonland is 18 tracks of pithy, hard-hitting and (mostly) super-short grunge-tinged psychedelia. They play the Double Crown on Saturday, March 9 with The Vaygues. 10 p.m., $7. Photo by Daniel Pelken.
