Critics' Picks: The Regrettes at Mr. Smalls | Music | Pittsburgh | Pittsburgh City Paper

[ROCK] + SUN., JUNE 25

Teens these days! All they care about is their phones and selfies and the Kardashians and making great music and politics and standing up for their rights and ... wait, what? Teenagers now, as they always have, are making art that challenges the pea-brained adults who talk down to them. It’s not even surprising that Lydia Night, lead singer of The Regrettes, is 16, because the group’s songs are filled with a distinctly adolescent energy that’s angry but hopeful, like wanting to die and having greasy hair but also throwing the finger to everyone telling them they can’t. Also playing Mr. Smalls is local punk band Brazilian Wax, which is filled with self-described “menstrual-fueled fury.” Aren’t we all? 7:30 p.m. 400 Lincoln Ave., Millvale. $10-12. 412-821-4447 or
