Punk rock is a Gainesville staple. Much the same way that sports fans obsess about Gator football, musicians and music devotees look at our town as a bastion of hope for aggressive, foot-stomping tunes. The group Post Teens keeps that ambition alive with fast, catchy songs designed to make the angst-y teen in you glow with nostalgia. If you’re feeling generous, go ahead and buy the group’s album and enjoy the not-so-soothing sounds of “Turn Down The Teen Rebellion.” In the absence of articulation: Go see them, have a good time.

You can do just that on Friday when the band performs with newcomers Sunshine State, Atlanta’s GG King and the group Rapturous Grief at Loosey’s, starting at 9 p.m.
