The Revolution Lives

Punk godfather Wayne Kramer is keeping the legacy of the MC5 alive.

Of course, the anger that right-wing beliefs like these spur within Kramer result in some of the best moments on Dangerous Madness, including the title song ("Guy next door voted Republican/Said he was burned out on paying for welfare") and "Back to Detroit" ("Kid could ride his bike through any neighborhood in town/No fear of getting jacked for his sneakers"). Kramer knows that by speaking out against this mindset, he won't change the world. But perhaps he'll change some minds.

"What I'm hoping is that my work can do what great art has done for me--which is, at a time when I needed it, it reached out and kind of put a hand on my shoulder and said, 'You are not alone. It's all right.' Bukowski did that for me, and James Brown, and John Coltrane. I don't know that I achieve it, but that's what I'm striving for."

Wayne Kramer. 9:30 p.m. Saturday, June 15, Seven South, 7 South Broadway, $8, 830-2525 or 800-444-
