Pop band Cobra Starship gained notoriety with their song "Snakes on a Plane (Bring It)" from the ballyhooed flick of the same name. The novelty of boy band meets pop punk via synth and electro funk is still there, but seems to have worn off a bit. Just as their snarkily witty numbers, sung by vocalist Gabe Saporta, get a tad too kitschy, the guitars hop in to save the day. The combo is touring in support of the freshly released album Hot Mess. With the Audition, the Friday Night Boys and Skeet Skeet. $20. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Tremont Music Hall, 400 W. Tremont Ave. 704-343-9494. www.tremontmusichall.com.
