Bomb the Music Industry, The Sidekicks, The Taxpayers, The Big Sleep 

When: Sat., Aug. 13, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $7-10
Never mind those rude boy bones rattling away inside the closet of Bomb the Music Industry! The New York band has long since outgrown their ska-core roots and established themselves as a supremely worthy successor to the unclaimed seat atop the DIY punk heap (left vacant by another exclamation-happy band, Against Me!). Restlessly evolving along the way, BTMI has gradually shifted from an act whose fervent punk devotion often overshadowed their music (their "Bring Your Own Band" tours let instrument-toting fans join frontman Jeff Rosenstock on stage), to a honest-to-goodness musical force to be reckoned with. Heaping choruses atop songs that feel like they are unraveling with each and every passing second, BTMI should be proud of this year's anthem-laden Vacation, a recording that will tickle the fancy of any discerning Titus Andronicus fan, or Thermals loyalists looking for their new Hutch Harris.
