We may have lost Punk Rock Bowling at Memory Lanes, but don’t think for a sec that the punks aren’t alive and well in MPLS + STPL. (At least alive, maybe not well? Especially their livers. Anyway.) The scene vets in Rad Owl keep flying the flag for high speed melodic punk with their new LP Madison Beast and will be joined by the equally energetic Class of 86 and ska-punk partiers in The Von Tramps. All three bands should be on you local music radar even if you’re not holding on to your youthful angst. Saturday, January 5th, 9 PM. $5.Paul Cajun
