The bookers at Dante's should be commended for conveniently slotting seminal San Francisco punk band Avengers during the maelstrom that is The Avengers' Hollywood-blockbuster summer. But puzzled Marvel nerds may be in for a surprise if they neglect the fine print; tonight's show is a time capsule of old-school punk, featuring poppy queercore pioneers Pansy Division. It's been a long time since the group was thrust into the faces of mainstream America on Green Day's Dookie tour in 1994, but Pansy Division's legion of man-lovin' loyalists hasn't waned a bit. With sporadic releases dotting the last decade of their trailblazing career, and as subjects of the 2009 documentary film Pansy Division: Life in a Gay Rock Band, their elder statesmen status almost makes you forget they wrote "He Whipped My Ass in Tennis (Then I Fucked His Ass in Bed)." Tonight, you'll remember. RYAN J. PRADO
