Lady Dottie is a sexagenarian soul singer based in San Diego who performs standards by everyone from Lead Belly to AC/DC, backed by a band of punk-scene stalwarts (including members of Operator X, Jejune, and GoGoGo Airheart). Their website tags them "wedding band... band for hire... corporate bands," and indeed, with Lady Dottie's mellifluous yet rugged pipes and the Diamonds' able and amped-up playing, they would absolutely kill at your alt-wedding. Tonight you can see them tear it up at the Funhouse instead—formal attire worn at your own risk. With Hungry Ghost and Sad Horse. (Funhouse, 206 Fifth Ave N, 374-8400. 9:30 pm, $7, 21+.)
