Off With Their Heads bring balance to pop-punk. Pick any of the Minneapolis group’s songs, and you’ll hear an even mix of smile-inducing pop and rugged, snotty nihilism. The band combines gruff and bass-heavy drunken abandon with sugar-sweet melodies. It’s a simple enough mix, but their songs are an intriguing blend of contradictions. The band’s instrumental attack is brash but blissfully energetic, and frontman Ryan Young sounds pissed, snarky, and surprisingly well-versed in writing catchy tunes. It’s nothing really new for the genre, but Off With Their Heads are close to mastering it, while their peers are still trying to figure out which three chords to use. Off With Their Heads, with Dear Landlord, Reverend Deadeye, the Fucking Cops, and Setbacks play Now That's Class at 11 p.m. Tickets: $5. —Matt Whelihan
