Come Ons Come Back

It’s that time of year again — pop-punk season in Palm Beach County. The first sign arrives this weekend, when the Come Ons play their semi-annual reunion show. For the past nine years, the Come Ons — who don’t fall very far from the Ramones/Screeching Weasel family tree — have existed in a state of permanent hiatus for about half that time; they never officially disbanded, but they never promise anything more than their “last show ever” at most gigs. The current lineup is the same as before, but only on paper. Taking the place of longtime drummer Tony Sacchetillo will be his nephew, Tony Sacchetillo. The Come Ons join the Getback, Dirty Boxes, UglyHarts, Leading the Heroes, and Abstract Remedy this Saturday at Murphy's Downtown Saloon (36 SE Third St., Boca Raton). The show starts at 8 p.m. Admission costs $5 for 21 and up, and $10 for ages 18 to 20. Call 561-447-6617.
