I’m not going to not mention Tom Petty and Big Star, because, c’mon, Nude Beach’s incredible new double album, 77, oozes those and other easy-to-identify influences from every dirt-clogged pore. But don’t let all the hero worship distract you from the fact that the Brooklyn-based trio has its own thing going in the particular way it blends classic rock sensibility with power-pop goodness and scrappy punk action. Plenty of bands do this or something similar in 2014; very few do it well. Nude Beach is near the top of the list. A must-see potpourri of local and touring punks rounds out Sunday’s stacked bill.
