Monday To-Do

Posted By on Mon, Mar 31, 2008 at 11:36 AM

Things are going to be a little slow around here while Lindsey's on vacation, but the less hip around the office are going to do what we can. Meanwhile, something to do tonight:

PHANTOM PLANET

8 p.m., Juanita’s. $10 adv./$12 d.o.s.

Chances are if you know Phantom Planet you’re good at pop culture trivia. The band first came onto the scene when founding — but not current — drummer Jason Schwartzman started to get rave reviews for his role in “Rushmore.” A little farther down the road, the group’s sunny anthem “California” became the theme song of “The O.C.” But on the eve of the release of Phantom Planet’s fourth album, and first in four years, the band seems poised to become a band you know simply because they’re a really sharp pop-rock band. On “Raise the Dead,” to be released in mid-April through emo giant Fueled by Ramon (home of the likes of Fall Out Boy, Panic at the Disco and Paramore), Phantom Planet sounds incredibly self-assured. The lead single, “Do the Panic,” is infectious, jittery pop-punk that’s sure to blow up on the web or wherever it is songs blow up for the kids these days. Local shimmering pop-rockers Kingsdown open. All ages are welcome.
