To these ears, punk that veers into power pop is a combo up there with peanut butter and chocolate, and with acts like King Tuff, Titus Andronicus and Japandroids, the last few years have been a golden age for it. Both bands on this bill are also working the territory. Nashville's Diarrhea Planet
(which somewhat preposterously tours with four guitarists) channels Cheap Trick, the Descendents and Weezer in equal doses on its recent full-length, I'm Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams
. The So So Glos, high priests of the Brooklyn DIY scene, are a little snottier, but their beery hooks are plenty charming. With Warrensburg's Vandal? Vandal!
