The Pink Spiders

[ROCK] + SAT., DEC. 16

It’s been 10 years since the release of power-pop group The Pink Spiders’ second album, Teenage Graffiti, and the band is celebrating with a tour. Its vibrant and rambunctious sound holds up, as the members yell, “don’t call it a crush / to be crushed like that,” on “Little Razorblade,” with all the pent-up energy of your romantic punk-teen heart. The Spiders will be joined at Mr. Smalls by the funny and melancholy pop of Third Class, ambient indie from The Petals, and funk rock from Dayshift.

8 p.m.
400 Lincoln Ave., Millvale.
