Any band that dares to call itself the Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash can't be all bad, and it is with a loving touch that San Diego post-punker Mark Stuart and crew dish out their own brand of honky-tonk, written in, but not necessarily derivative of, Cash's long shadow. The Man in Black didn't mind a bit when he was still with us. Hear the Sons wail tonight at 10 p.m. at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom, 2637 Welton Street. Admission is $8; call 303-297-1772 or log on to www.cervantesmasterpiece.com.

For reservations, call 303-322-7009 or log on to www.dmns.org.
