Faux Ferocious, Shehehe, All-City Cannonballers, The Rodney Kings

Few band names describe the group in question’s sound as aptly as Faux Ferocious. The Nashville-based four-piece hits hard up front with a driving garage-punk sound that hides a twisted sense of humor underneath; it’s somehow both tongue-in-cheek and achingly earnest in a tight-jeaned, ‘70s rock and roll sort of way. Most of all, it’s fun, the kind of music meant to soundtrack beer-saturated house shows and late-night high-school shenanigans. The group has carved out a solid local fan base over the past couple years, so look for the show Saturday—where you can also catch locals Shehehe, All-City Cannonballers and The Rodney Kings—to be a blowout and a blast.

10 p.m. $5 (21+), $7 (18–20).
