Picks: The Whammy

[MUSIC] Saturday, Dec. 8

It’s easy to call The Whammy a rockabilly supergroup. After all, it comprises Slim Jim Phantom (of The Stray Cats fame), Tim Polecat (The Polecats) and Jonny Bowler (The Guana Bats). And you might be inclined to call them a tribute act, as the trio opts to perform classics and hidden gems of greaser rock. But this is rockabilly — it’s a tribute whether a band’s playing covers or originals (which The Whammy has). 9:30 p.m.; Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel, 4433 Paradise Road, www.hardrockhotel.com, $20.
