Diarrhea Planet, The So So Glos, Jezebel County Hospital 

When: Thu., Aug. 22, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $8-9
Ostensibly not convinced of the off-putting power of its chosen band name, four-guitar Nashville sextet Diarrhea Planet elected to title its second album I'm Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams. Fuck these ass-obsessed assholes, right? Not quite so fast: Though the 13 songs on Dreams are no doubt cocksure and sloppy, Diarrhea Planet marries its unabashed rock bombast (again, four guitars) to songs that catch no matter if they're aching or exalting. Delivering a manic and delirious distillation of The Who, Cheap Trick and fellow Tennessee troublemaker the late Jay Reatard, these bros aim for instant rock god status on a budget best suited for garages or a communal living space. It's too fun to be fancy and much too jubilant to let that name stand as a barrier to entry for very long. &mdash Grayson Currin
