Relive your high school memories as hometown heroes New Found Glory and "Ocean Avenue" punks Yellowcard join musical forces for a co-headlining tour at Revolution. "Having both originated with the alternative-music scene of the late '90s and 2000s," the bands, as pointed out by New Times, produce "a high-pitched, socially piercing sound with enough musical brute force to back it up, though it doesn't always take itself too seriously." Watch the nostalgia come to life this week in the 954.
With Tigers Jaw. Wednesday, October 14, 6:30 p.m. Revolution Live, 100 SW 3rd Ave., Fort Lauderdale; 954-449-1025; jointherevolution.net. Tickets cost $23.50 plus fees via ticketmaster.com.
When Hawaiian-bred, California-based reggae-rock collective Iration played SunFest over the summer, singer and guitarist Micah Pueschel expressed to New Times how excited the band was about its then-forthcoming album, Hotting Up.
"We had a really, really good team in the studio," Pueschel explained of the band's fourth studio production, which dropped this August. "We worked with a different producer, David Manzoor, who’s from the hip-hop world, and then we [had] the engineer and the mixing team from the indie-rock scene, who worked with Imagine Dragons and the Killers. Everything went really well and the songs all came out great. I’m really proud of it." Check 'em out for yourself as they bring their "indie reggae rock" to Revolution.

Buddy Guy has the "blues running through [his] veins." So much so that, at 79, the six-string legend recently released his latest studio album, which peaked at number 60 on the Billboard 200 and topped the Billboard Blues Albums chart on August 22. That just goes to show the Louisiana-born guitarist was definitely Born To Play Guitar.

The Winery Dogs
Enter a state of complete "Oblivion" as the Winery Dogs unleash the shreddage at Culture Room.
