Out of our heads

In any other hemisphere, Sweden's Backyard Babies wouldn't bother kicking your ass in a room smaller than the FleetCenter. But since this is America the Stupid, where we hate any glam-punk that's ballsier than Mötley Crüe but less butch than Mike Ness, they'll make an exception, probably just this once. The last time they were in town, just before the release of their best-of collection Tinnitus (Liquor and Poker), they cleaned out the metro-area drug supply; fortunately, Dregen's the only guitar player on the planet with the Thunders-worthy licks to back up his appetite for destruction. With NYC hardcore/glam-rock legend Todd Youth's latest band (and Capitol recording artists?) Chelsea Smiles + Toronto hair-metal gypsies Crash Kelly at Great Scott, 1222 Comm Ave, Allston $9 617.734.4502.
