Oblivians at the Summit

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

From Elvis Presley to Jay Reatard, Memphis rockers are known for causing a stir. And while there may be more prominent names than Oblivians, few created more ruckus than the '90s garage punk blasters whose reunion tour comes to The Summit Saturday in a perfect capper to a big weekend for underground rock nostalgia in Columbus.

After kindred spirits like Gibson Bros. and New Bomb Turks play the Parking Lot Blowout, many of the diehards will migrate north to see Greg, Jack and Eric Oblivian unleash a most violent case of the blues. Completing the time-warp effect will be Cheater Slicks, Bassholes and Dexter Romweber Duo.

10 p.m. Saturday, July 10

The Summit, North Campus
