Love it or hate it, the pop punk machine continues to pass along bands with high energy and smart-assed lyrics. Even though they sling out some sarcastic lyrics at higher tempos, Birds With Teeth is more than the three-chord tracks and bathroom humor that was big seven years ago. Locally disrespectful, the quartet moves between smirking songs like "Can't Even Kill Myself" to more complex structures. The group won't be talking about mooning their high school class, but it's probably best that type of music has either grown up or drifted away. With Lucky Five, Hadwynn, RioBravo. $7. 9 p.m. Tremont Music Hall, 400 W. Tremont Ave. 704-343-9494. www.tremontmusichall.com.
