Wavves, King Tuff, Jacuzzi Boys 

When: Mon., Oct. 7, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $17-20
Today's Wavves might not recognize its former self. The scuzzy no-fi bedroom project that garnered Nathan Williams premature blog buzz somehow grew into pop-punk revivalism, borrowing and polishing hooks and sneers from Green Day and Weezer. Last year's fourth album, Afraid of Heights, found Williams further embracing pop instincts thanks to Rihanna and M.I.A. producer John Hill, though the project shed little of the vital snottiness inherent in Williams' persona. Still, it's the sound and not the fury that makes Wavves a simpatico headliner over effervescent garage-pop acts King Tuff and Jacuzzi Boys. Both openers share affection for overdriven dynamics, power pop punch and light glam swagger. —Bryan C. Reed
