The 509ers.

The 509ers. (June 12, 2013)

Crusty old-school punks: here's one's for you.

Lelaneia and Tom Dubay of 131 Elizabeth St., Hartford, are hosting a barbecue (3-6 p.m.) and four area punk bands (6-10 p.m.), including the 509ers, the Radiation, 420 Blackbirds and the absolutely perfectly titled Shitty Shitty Band Band, according to an e-mail I got from Stephen of the 509ers. (Here's the event website.)

Remember, however, that this is someone's home.

"All are invited, just rock responsibly," he writes. "Weather Permitting." (Also: bring a food or beverage item.)

The same lineup of bands will be at Cafe Nine in New Haven on June 21. RSVP to

Here's an old clip of the 509ers at Toad's Place in 1989.
