TED LEO AND THE PHARMACISTS
9 p.m., Juanita's. $10 adv./$12 d.o.s.

Where other punk bands wanted to mock you to death, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, meant it, man. Over 20 years in Washington, D.C., rock acts have established Leo as one of the harder working men in independent rock, but it would mean nothing without his past five albums. Even ignoring his eerily good falsetto, Ted Leo writes aching, tuneful rock songs whose romantic and political assessments are rarely off the mark. Leo is known for energetic and friendly live performances (he takes requests!), so if nothing else, you're getting a good value. Birds of Avalon, a '70s rock revival band from North Carolina, will open — but they may not play Foghat. Fascists.

—Fritz Brantley
