D.R.I. w/ The 33’s, Skwirl Grinda, Red Hot Rebelettes 

When: Thu., March 4 2010
Price: $15, $11 (adv.)
Old-school punk legends D.R.I. (Dirty Rotten Imbeciles) bring their pit-churning metal style to the Oasis on Thursday night. They’ve recently cranked up a tour after a long hiatus while guitarist Spike Cassidy recovered from a nasty encounter with colon cancer. For Charleston punk/metal fans, it promises to be one of the best shows of the year. In the late ’80s, D.R.I was synonymous with fast-tempo punk songs with a metal crunch. Their third album, Crossover, basically defined the genre of thrash metal. Opening will be local faves The 33s, Skwirl Grinda, and others — along with saucy stripteases by the Red Hot Rebelettes. This show will probably sell out. Be prepared for a rowdy pit. Music starts at 8 p.m. Advance tickets are available online at —Joshua Curry
