Punk’s not dead, it just took up residence at Bandito’s Burrito Lounge. The longtime beer, shot and burrito restaurant in the Devil’s Triangle has become the city’s go-to spot for 1980s underground music – holding recent free performances by Agent Orange, DI and the Meatmen. It continues its parade of Iran-Contra-era rockers with a show by the crown jewel of vintage Los Angeles bubble-gum punk, the Dickies. Like the Ramones, the group eschewed the political statements and tales of woe favored by their contemporaries for an amped-up comedic style that lived unapologetically in the shallow end of the pool. While everyone else was ready to riot, the Dickies just wanted to party. Joining them for a night of base pleasures Monday, Nov. 4 are Richmond groups the Creep-a-Zoids and Chrome Daddy Disco. Doors open at 9 p.m. Admission is free. banditosburritolounge.com. — Chris Bopst
