Fri., Feb. 15, the Dollyrots
Bows & Arrows, 8 p.m., $5
Sometimes you've just had enough with being nice. Sometimes you're just really tired of people. Sometimes your week just sucked, man. Whaddya gonna do? Here's what you're gonna do: Head out to see the Dollyrots, and let them do the heavy lifting for you. The Los Angeles-based duo, featuring childhood friends Kelly Ogden (on bass and lead vocals) and Luis Cabezas (guitar), bashes out sugarcoated punk tunes à la the Muffs on tracks such as “Because I'm Awesome” and “Hyperactive.” Live, the pair is infectiously exuberant and fun. It's damn near impossible to catch a set and leave feeling worse than when you arrived. So, to recap: crappy week? Problem solved. You're welcome. 1815 19th Street, www.dollyrots.com.
