Sean McClain has a soft spot for rock ’n’ roll. The owner of Bandito’s Burrito Lounge and the Viceroy doesn’t like all rock music though. And what he doesn’t like, he hates vehemently. Which means if McClain’s putting on a show, it’s only because he believes in it. And that’s the case Monday, July 28, when he brings the Supersuckers to Bandito’s. Like McClain, the self-proclaimed “greatest rock and roll band in the world” is straight-up and no-nonsense, a balls-to-wall rock ’n’ roll band in the vein of Motorhead, the Ramones and AC/DC. Opening will be the reincarnation of 1980s Richmond rock stalwarts Mudd Helmet, and new millennium keepers of the flame Blackout Shift. The onslaught of turned-up-to-11 attitude begins at 9 p.m. Free. banditosburritolounge.com.
