Everlast--See Sunday
Friday, September 6

Back Street Boys
Verizon Wireless Amphitheater
Did you catch that 'N Sync reunion performance on the VMAs last week? Shit was outta control, yo. Everybody who saw it said that the reunion was, like, what dreams are made of. The trouble is they're copycats. Cuz Backstreet Boys have been back (alright!) and touring for, like, a year and half already, guys. Where have you been? Now, BSB approach their 20th anniversary as a reconciled group--nay, as the original, top dog, best-selling boy band in history--having just dropped a new album titled In a World Like This and currently on a global tour. That's, like, the entire planet. And they stop by Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine this Friday. So suck on that you lame 'N Sync-ers! AJ, Howie, Nick, Kevin and Brian 4eva! (Amanda Parsons)

Tesla Boy
The Constellation Room
Everything about Tesla Boy seems out of this world, from their cosmic new wave aesthetic to their funky synth pop jams. Heavily influenced by his love of American pop music, Anton Sedidov would go on to spawn Tesla Boy in 2010, setting off a new era of electronic music artists to emerge from Russia. Just like the famous inventor Nikola Tesla, this group makes the most out of playing with electronics, combining hypnotic, synth beats with funk, pop and disco sounds. Night time is the right time to enjoy this group, especially if you're in the mood for dancing. Check them out tonight at the Constellation Room. (Aimee Murillo)

The Coach House
You'll always love this New Jersey band for giving us one of the greatest songs about infuriating romantic relationships "Anything Anything (I'll Give You)" but mainstream success beyond that seems to have eluded them. Lame, of course- true fans realize the real lies in calling this band washed up, since their eventual reunion on VH1's Bands Reunited helped ease the group back into the studio. And here they are, playing their sweet pop punk, alt-rock thrills for audiences again. What would fans give for a chance to rock out with Dramarama again? I'm sure the answer is 'anything.' Tonight they play The Coach House with Honey and The Heroine and The Relatives. (Aimee Murillo)
