Local H w/The Weeks 

When: Thu., April 28, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $12-$15
Since mid-’90s alternative rock isn’t exactly a genre marked often by irony, one might assume that archetypal alt-rockers Local H’s The Singles Tour — promising “all the hits all night” — will feature the post-grunge, pre-White-Stripes-and-Black-Keys, bass-less combo playing their 1996 chart-topper “Bound for the Floor” (i.e. the “keep it copasetic” song) on repeat, all night. Then again, a penchant for humor is a distinction that set Local H apart (and ahead) of their contemporaries; I mean, we are talking about a band that had the stones to name a song after Eddie Vedder (in 1996, no less), before ending their golden era with a concept album about cats (i.e. struggling musicians) — 1998’s critically acclaimed, commercially disappointing Pack Up the Cats. While the masses … just. Didn’t. Get it. The band — now consisting of singer Scott Lucas and former Triple Fast Action drummer Brian St. Clair — have since kept things copasetic, soldiering on through changing trends, likely ready for the inevitable alt-rock resurgence. Also, speaking of irony, local rockers The Lonely H (often mispronounced as guess who?) are playing across town at The Basement tonight. So make sure to mark your calendars correctly.
