Punk Fogies Rock Cleveland This Weekend

Half Cleveland/Chi-Pig

Before Chris Butler found fame with the Waitresses -- you know, "I Know What Boys Like" and the "Square Pegs" TV theme -- he was a member of Tin Huey, the legendary late-1970s Akron new-wave/art-punk band. Now Butler and his Huey bandmate Harvey Gold play in Half Cleveland, a group perpetuating the rockers' experimental legacy. Call Chi-Pig the band that time forgot, a trio whose "Miami" album would have given Bow Wow Wow, the Slits and X-Ray Spex a run for their money had it been released when it originally was recorded in 1979. 9 p.m. Saturday. Beachland Ballroom and Tavern, 15711 Waterloo Road, Cleveland. $8. 216-383-1124.
