It's local power trio night at the Hi-Tone on Friday. Rootsy youngsters the Dirty Streets specialize in a classic-rock facsimile that draws on such '60s and '70s blues-rock stars as Led Zeppelin, Cream, and Humble Pie. The band lives up to its name with their grimy, swaggering attack, but they could still learn a thing or two from the band with whom they'll be sharing the stage: the River City Tanlines, where Alicja Trout (also Mouserocket) lets her inner guitar hero out with ample help from arguably the city's best rock rhythm section, Terrence Bishop and John Bonds. The Dirty Streets and the River City Tanlines play the Hi-Tone Café Friday, July 2nd. Showtime is 10 p.m. Admission is $6.
