What to Do Tonight: Teenage Bottlerocket

Laramie, Wyoming, may not be a punk hotbed, but Teenage Bottlerocket play loud, fast and anthemic enough to make you think that the sleepy town could be harboring a musical secret or two. The band goes back nearly a decade, when twin brothers Ray and Brandon Carlisle played in a punk band called the Homeless Wonders. When the group broke up, the Carlisles formed Teenage Bottlerocket (named after a local vehicle bearing that spray-painted moniker) as a Ramones-flavored trio, released a couple of records and went through two guitarists before settling on former Lillingtons member Kody Templeman. Bassist Miguel Chen joined shortly after. Since then, Teenage Bottlerocket have opened for All, the Ataris, and the Mr. T Experience; the Groovie Ghoulies liked them so much they featured them on their personal stage at the Vans Warped Tour. The quartet recently released They Came From the Shadows, featuring killer songs like “Skate or Die” and “Fatso Goes Nutzoid.” Cobra Skulls and Beatnik Termites open at 9 p.m. at the Beachland Ballroom (15711 Waterloo Rd., 216.383.1124, beachlandballroom.com). Tickets: $10. — Brian Baker
