Bruce Ice Cream and the Freeze Street Band isn't going to be playing "Rocky Road" or inserting dairy-themed puns into lyrics like the band and event names might imply — the group is a pretty straight-up Springsteen tribute. The "ice cream" part comes from Little Baby's Ice Cream, whose founders will be singing Springsteen on Friday ?to raise money to upgrade from their tricycle to a planned permanent home on Frankford. Little Baby's is bringing their signature odd flavors (like Earl Grey Sriracha), and we ?bet the band's energy level will be sugar-high. Ditto opener Adult Content, a sextet that suits up old-school to play oversexed, highly ridiculous but technically proficient funk, with frontman "David B. Awesome" shouting demands that the audience shake body parts and gyrate? in James Brownian fashion.? They actually do have a song about ice cream, though its single entendre is likely to make you more than a little uncomfortable.
Fri., March 23, 9 p.m., $15 (includes ice cream), with Bruce Ice Cream and the Freeze Street Band, Adult Content and Comedy Dreamz, Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 215-739-9684, johnnybrendas.com.
