Stiff Records doesn’t get enough love in these modern days, and the sophomore album from Eric Goulden doesn’t either. Released in 1978, The Wonderful World of Wreckless Eric wasn’t as sloppy as his debut and still stands as one of the most important releases from punk’s first wave. Still spry and sly at age 64, Goulden arrives in Ybor City supporting a cantankerous new record, Construction Time & Demolition, where he doesn’t try and doll up the maladies that inevitably come with the passing of time.

Wreckless Eric, Sun. 7 p.m. $12. Crowbar, 1812 N. 17th St. Ybor City.
