Budget Rock VI 

When: Thu., Oct. 25, 7 p.m. 2007
Price: $10

Is it a tinny ruckus banged out on ramshackle equipment in a dank club? Is it competent rock 'n' roll showcased en masse for sensible audiences at a discount price? What, exactly, is Budget Rock? It's all of the above across four days and thirty bands at the Stork Club this week, for starters, as well as a brazen celebration of "mindless garage rock" and the sound of buzzing amps. Now in its sixth year, it's evidence of the Bay Area's fecund underground rock scene. It's the exploding drums in the Flakes' "Open up Your Door" (playing Sunday) and the raspy drawl of Haunted George's voice in a cover of Pat Boone's "MoodyRiver" (playing Saturday). It's the sort of thing you just have to be there for. Four-day passes cost $35, single day tickets $10. Thursday and Friday, 7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 2 p.m.
