Tonight: Good Charlotte at Summit
It is somewhat hard to believe that Good Charlotte has been together -- and, with few line-up changes, to boot -- since 1996. But the proto-mall punk band found its not-too harsh edge early into its career and has been riding that sweet spot ever since, with radio-ready songs about relationships, heartbreak, love and intoxication.
From the silly (see "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous") to the serious (GC's anti-suicide anthem "Hold On"), the Maryland dudes have consistently connected with fans, regardless of the subject matter. On tour for the quintet's fifth release, Cardiology, the band seems to have tapped back into what made it famous in the first place: Extremely accessible pop punk. This show is all ages and tickets are $25.50-28. Doors open at 6 p.m., bands start at 7 p.m.
