are a little surfer punk, a little bit rock and a little bit reggae. Mash that all up and you get an energy-packed, fast-paced, make-you-wanna-move groove that will keep you warm on this wet wet wet day. With beach-party, fun-loving classic summertime tunes such as "Fire Starter," you might just want to prepare yourself to mentally travel to a warmer locale. Go ahead; pretend that your weatherproof boots are flip-flops, order something fruity-boozy from the bar and let loose. A little escapism sounds pretty good right about now.
Catch The Expendables tonight at the Knitting Factory—part of their most recent tour. Their buddies from John Brown's Body and C-Money & The Players Inc. (featuring members of Slightly Stoopid) share the stage and get things going at 8 p.m. Tickets are $14-$25.
And if you still need more punk, or just like to keep it local, head to Liquid across the way for 1332's Punk Monday, featuring The Jerkwads, Raid (Andy A.'s new band) and The Mongoloids (Devo cover band). That show starts at 9 p.m. and is FREE.
