Two bands, the Bottle Rockets and Trampled by Turtles, are set to rock Skinner’s Pub on Sunday, Oct. 15, with the doors opening at 7 p.m. and the show starting at 9 p.m.

The Bottle Rockets seem to have a sound reminiscent of Bob Dylan playing with the Refreshments. They are touring to promote their eighth album, “Zoysia.” The Bottle Rockets consist of guitarist/vocalist Brian Henneman, drummer Mark Ortmann, guitarist John Horton and the newest member, bassist/vocalist Keith Voegele.

Trampled by Turtles is a bluegrass band from Duluth, Minn. Their style, however, doesn’t fit typical bluegrass. According to the band’s Web site, it combines bluegrass, punk, alt-country and rock to create a fast-paced, floor-stomping, live performance.

Tickets are being sold at Skinner’s Pub for $8 in advance and $10 at the door. The show is open to everyone 21 years of age and older.
