Up on the roof

Hey, I have the perfect place to put all press releases that bill events as "shimmering" or "the most unique." (Hint: Circular!)

However, the so-called "Russian folk 'n' roll" band Limpopo gets a thumbs-up for chutzpah. Here's an excerpt from the band's website:

If your house parties are getting a little bit dull and predictable, I beg of you to slip a little Limpopo into your stereo and see what happens. Your most crusty house guest will be up on the house top in their underwear with a beer bong, sucking down a dozen raw eggs, and screaming at any Italians in the crowd where Rocky can go and what he can do when he gets there.

I don't know if this means the band is good, but I do know its next concert in Palo Alto is free. Limpopo plays the city's Twilight Concert Series next Tuesday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Mitchell Park Bowl.

Actually, you could plan a lot of your social life next week around free summer outdoor concerts. Also on tap:
