MxPx

Sunday, June 10, Gothic Theatre, 1-866-468-7621.

When MxPx got its start in 1993, it was known as Magnified Plaid. Back then, the Bremerton trio was little more than a replicate of its influences, specifically groups like NOFX. But the threesome never dreamed it would go on to be as influential in the Christian punk scene as their West Coast idols were in the secular arena; scrubbed clean, MxPx's catchy blend of pop punk was impossible for the washed masses to resist. For a brief time, the band seemed poised to reach critical mass in the mainstream on the strength of such undeniably infectious anthems as "Chick Magnet" and "Move to Bremerton." But though it never really caught fire, MxPx has maintained a respectable following while continuing to make music and tour with workmanlike efficiency. Fat Mike should be proud.
