Filthy Jim


Sure all good things must end, but what about things dirty and debauched? After nearly 10 years together, Filthy Jim (pictured), Lawrence’s staple sludge-metal and whiskey-rock act, is bringing its venture to an end with a farewell show at the Replay Friday. The band’s name, slang for a used condom, is indicative of both its raw, garage-metal sound and its influences, which include Turbonegro and the Hellacopters. Filthy Jim has made the most of its time together, releasing three albums, touring 15 times, appearing at South by Southwest in Austin and raising a drink (or five) on any good night in Lawrence. Don’t expect any misty eyes or nostalgia — all you’ll really get is a raucous sendoff drenched in PBR.
