For a hardcore metal band as popular as Akimbo is, it’s a bit strange they don’t play out more often. Luckily, fans of the unearthly loud and brutal trio can get a partial fix tonight with Sandrider. Also a trio, and comprised of Akimbo frontman Jon Weisnewski on guitar, Ruby Doe leader Jesse Roberts on bass and Akimbo drummer Nat Damm on drums, Sandrider are opening for former Minuteman bassist and all-around punk rock icon Mike Watt, who is currently touring with his latest project, the Missingmen.
