Joyce Manor, Seahaven are at the Jackpot tonight

The title of Joyce Manor's latest album, Never Hungover Again, sounds like a promise just waiting to be broken. Lead singer Barry Johnson's singing often gets compared with Morrissey's, and the angst dial for this California pop-punk ensemble tends to be set on high.

Johnson's lyrics seem continually to inform the listener that he is down and you should kick him, but this whole sad-sack routine is shined up slightly by Joyce Manor's preppy hooks and three-part harmonies. Observe the yin and the yang of this act Thursday at the Jackpot, where fellow California punk band Seahaven is also on deck.
