Morningwood 

With the Sounds and Action Action. Wednesday, April 19, at House of Blues.

The name says it all. This band is a lot about sex, a little about humor, and it rocks hard. With guitar licks befitting hair bands and a commanding frontwoman, Morningwood sounds a bit like the Runaways would have, if Lita Ford had claimed her metal goddess title sooner and sexpot Cherie Curie had remained the singer. It's there in the band's reckless abandon ("Nu Rock") and morality-snubbing content -- as on "Babysitter," where Chantal Claret taunts, "You can be my boy scout/ You need someone to tuck you in?"

But she doesn't just give lip service to the songs' subjects in her rich, throaty voice. Shooting from stage right to stage left like a spastic ping-pong ball, Claret nabs one lucky (or maybe unlucky) fan to enact the lusty lyrics to "Take Off Your Clothes" -- straddling, grinding, and all. Wear your sexiest underwear.
