Born Ruffians, Winter Gloves 

When: Thu., Oct. 7, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $9-11

Throw out any knee-jerk reactions to Born Ruffian's admittedly immature antics: At their best, this irrepressible Canadian foursome makes some of the most breathlessly thrilling indie pop around—childish themes and call-and-response refrains included. With spotless guitar tones and rhythms that pitter-patter with all the adrenaline of a teenage heart, the band sprints through youthful jams perfect for an adolescent dance-athon, even if those days are behind you. Irresistible riffs and rants tumble out effortlessly, lending the Ruffians kinetic power that shines past any lyrical weakness. Winter Gloves open. —Jordan Lawrence
