TRUCKADELIC'S FAREWELL SHOW -- The thunderin' dieselbilly dudes of Truckadelic have decided to put their act up on cinderblocks in the back yard for a well-deserved retirement, but not before they take one last blast through their wild repertoire of crazed country-punk tunes. For years, these drunken rowdies have consistently staged the most unhinged performances ever seen in Little Five. It's therefore reasonable to expect that tonight's set will be legendary -- perhaps even mythic. Star Bar (Nicoll)
