Saturday To-Do: Pop the Top Fest

School Boy Humor.

5 p.m., Vino's. $10.

I know what hundreds of angst-y, Hot Topic-wearing teen-agers are doing on Saturday. They'll be lining up on the sidewalk on the corner of Seventh and Chester to get in to see Central Arkansas's most popular young, emo-ish rock bands. It'll be a homecoming for the headliners. Jacksonville's PMtoday, anchored by brothers Ryan, Connor and Cuinn Brogan, recently signed to Oregon-based indie label Rise Records. They're set to record in September in advance of a projected 2010 release. In the meantime, they're likely to continue a regime that seems to be the norm of young bands of their ilk — nonstop touring. That's certainly the standard for Little Rock's School Boy Humor, a poppy four-piece from Little Rock that released its debut on Vagrant Records in February. They've since pretty much lived on the road. Look for a young crowd who knows the words to help welcome them home. Don't Call Me Shirley, the Downtown Fiction, Select Start, Box Wine, Harp and Lyre  and Your Best Friend also perform.
