Like nature, culture abhors a vacuum. Though straight-forward high-energy rock 'n' roll will never really go away, as the pendulum of pop has swung toward quieter and more experimental music in recent years, the simple, bouncy glory of pop-punk has been experiencing a resurgence.
One of the bands leading that charge in a Weasel-less world is Teenage Bottlerocket, a fiery streak of four-counts and major keys that shares a guitar player with The Lillingtons and dishes out anthems by the butt-ton.
Teenage Bottlerocket will be coming to Boise to play for the first time at the Red Room Thursday, Nov. 8 with locals The Useless and Hotel Chelsea. Make sure to wear your pink-and-yellow Chuck Taylors with your black stovepipe pants, 'cause that shizzle is going to be poptastic.
Tickets for the show are $10 advance or $12 at the door.
