RX Bandits, Maps & Atlases and Zechs Marquise


Hawthorne Theatre (map) Southeast
Thu., July 28, 7:30 p.m. 2011 All Ages


Once a ska band, always a ska band, right? Okay, well, maybe we can make one exception for Rx Bandits, an ever-evolving Orange County-based four-piece beast of a band. For the past six years, the one-time token ska group on the roster of squeaky-clean lords of the late-'90s pop-punk underground, Drive-Thru Records, have gone through a complete overhaul, keeping their horn section, but easing away from third wave and gravitating toward a more progressive indie-rock-based sound. This is billed as Rx Bandits' "farewell tour," and guitarist Steve Choi has assured that the Bandits will continue in some form, but will cease to tour. Chicago quartet Maps and Atlases are opening the last jaunt, adding a bit of "math-rock cred" to what some might consider "the final skank." KEVIN DIERS
