The Lawrence Arms
The Lawrence Arms are breathing new life into that most unfortunate of rock subsets, pop-punk. Having more to do with brash-yet-melodic forebears such as The Buzzcocks than with the watered down, spiky-haired, boy-band simpering of Blink-182 or the Riot Grrrl lite of Avril Lavigne, The Lawrence Arms know how to make true punk, in all its anti-glory, that also manages to capture the simple beauty of a finely crafted pop song. If youre looking for a band that can thrash out three minutes of mayhem and still leave you with a tune to whistle all week, this is it. 8:30 p.m. Walters on Washington, 4215 Washington. For information, call 713-862-2513 or visit www.4215Washington.com. $10 to $12
Tue., Oct. 30, 8:30 p.m., 2007
