BRONCO AND HONEY PINE, THE GARAGE, Saturday, Dec. 28, 9 p.m., $5

Looking for some damn fine music as a way to shift gears from the madness of the holidays and back into a sense of normalcy? This show has what you need. This double-dose of local roots-rock is a perfect match for the rustic environs of The Garage. Bronco is one of my faves, and they don't play a ton of shows so this is a year-end treat. And Honey Pine, made up of former members of the Trigger Locks, Atomic Deluxe and other old faves, will be a new experience for me--but given the pedigree, I'm going to go ahead and assume they will kill it. Mix the music with some whiskey (naturally) and some tasty Southern-tinged grub, and it's a fine way to spend a Saturday night. (Photo courtesy Bronco's website)
