Do you remember when punk rock used to mean something? (Aside from spiky hair-dos and three minutes of whining about your parents, like some power-chord hungry version of the Fresh Prince.) Thank the gods that Rise Against does. The Chicago four-piece fuses the political musings of Bad Religion with hard-driving guitar work similar to fellow Windy City natives, Alkaline Trio. The end result? A sound thats decidedly true school. Catch Rise Against as they perform alongside The Used, Papa Roach, Silversun Pickups and over a dozen others this Saturday, starting at 10 a.m. at The Buzz Bake Sale at Sound Advice Amphitheater (601-7 Sansburys Way, West Palm Beach). Tickets start at $20. Call 561-616-4688, or visit www.buzzbakesale.com.
