What to Do Tonight: Channel 3




SoCal punk band Channel 3 formed back in 1983, and like most groups from the area (TSOL, Agent Orange, Suicidal Tendencies), it’s managed to stick around in some fashion or another. A favorite of influential California DJ Rodney Bingenheimer, Channel 3 toured the country after releasing their 1982 debut, Fear of Life. Then they faded into obscurity until resurfacing in 2002. Now, with original singer Mike Magrann and guitarist Kimm Gardner at the helm, the band is back at it. Songs range from snotty numbers like “Wetspots” to more melodic fare like “It’s the Little Things.” The band is playing just a few stateside shows before heading to the U.K. in August for the appropriately titled Rebellionfest. The Plain Dealers and Rabid Reactions open at 9 p.m. at Now That’s Class. Tickets: $12. —Jeff Niesel
