Spanish Gold — a new supergroup featuring My Morning Jacket drummer Patrick Hallahan, former Hacienda guitarist Dante Schwebel and Grupo Fantasma guitarist Adrian Quesada — is already on its second band name. (Its first, Spanish Bombs — nice Clash nod! — didn’t work out for legal reasons, so I’m told.) And tonight at The Basement Spanish Bombs will play their second show on a bill that also features Bobby Bare Jr. and Fresno, Calif. (total armpit, BTW), spaghetti Western-sounding stoner-rock duo Strange Vine. The show is free, starts at 9 p.m., and you should totally go (rumor has it there may* be some surprises).
* There also may not be any surprises.
