MANNEQUIN MEN There’s been lots of buzz and plenty of ink for this band since it formed about five years ago in Chicago. Fed at the breast of Iggy Pop and weaned on Black Flag, Mannequin Men have been hailed as a band that takes it to the next level and beyond on stage. Touring in support of their newest CD Lose Your Illusion Too, the boozy boys with the right amount of swagger and plenty of volume will make two stops on the same night in Ventura this weekend.
