SWINGIN' UTTERS
9 p.m. White Water Tavern.


So it's Thanksgiving. Maybe you're already tired of being around your annoying family members. Or maybe you're alone, wishing you had some annoying family members around to get tired of. Either way, here's a great excuse to get out of the house and be social and also take in some punk rock. San Francisco's Swingin' Utters are back at White Water Tavern, this time for a Turkey Day throwdown.

The Utters were one of the catchiest, best punk bands of the '90s. They took a hiatus for a few years and returned in 2011 with "Here, Under Protest." The band's newest album, this year's "Poorly Formed," is, understandably, a bit more varied than the street-punk anthems of "The Streets of San Francisco" and "A Juvenile Product of the Working Class," records that came out 18 and 17 years ago, respectively. There's nervy, jagged punk ("In a Video"), a little bit of country and banjo ("I'm a Little Bit Country"), rootsy numbers with violin, accordion and acoustic guitars in the mix ("Greener Grass"), jangly guitars ("A Walk With the Postman," "Brains") and even a sweet-sounding love tune ("Sevita Sing").

Also on this bill: Little Rock punk stalwarts The Burnt.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
