Warner Drive, May 24, Liquid

by

Monday has a bad rap--and deservedly so. But it doesn't have to be that way. On Monday, May 24, Los Angeles fivesome Warner Drive returns to Punk Monday, bringing its rock-with-a-little-punk-in-its-pockets sound. Part of what makes Warner Drive so easy to get into (besides the fact that one of their guitar players is female) is that they have that quintessential L.A. rock feel: layers of guitar, catchy hooks and crashing cymbals with hints of the '80s rock that played out on Santa Monica and Sunset boulevards. Warner Drive's edge is sharpened by a sense of humor and a pinch of the obscenity that punk is known for, as well as racing rhythms that make it impossible to sit still.

Head to Liquid, rock out to Warner Drive and take a little of the sting out of Monday. But be careful. If you have too much fun, Tuesday is really going to piss you off.

With Lullaby Polar and New Agenda, 9 p.m., $3.
