The Arcata Alibi’s Monday Night Budget Rock on July 18 features rock ‘n’ roll DJ King Maxwell working “the thin line between a bar fight and a really good time” (according to Alibi booker Francois). “Regarding rock,” says Maxwell, “I take it seriously. Respect the rock. I’m a traditionalist with a preference for good songs — The Allman brothers, Joan Jett, ZZ Top, Skynyrd, Jerry Reed, Rolling Stones, The Pretenders — all on vinyl of course.” So, like, classic rock? “You might call it classic rock, but there simply isn’t any debating how good some tunes are. Especially with beer,” sez Maxwell.
